These muffins are really good for breakfast or dessert with a glass of almond milk; you can also make an 8" square cake with this recipe.

The Ingredients:

1/3 c sugar
1 t baking soda
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t salt
1/4 t ground cloves
1/4 t nutmeg
3/4 c applesauce
1/2 c water
1/3 c oil
1 t vanilla
1/2 c raisins
1 large apple, diced

Crumb Topping:
1/3 c brown sugar
1/3 c rolled oats
1 T melted margarine
1 T flour
2 t cinnamon

The Process:
  1. Preheat oven to 350. 
  2. Crumble together topping ingredients and set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda, spices, and salt.  Stir in oil, vanilla, applesauce, and water.  Fold in raisins and chopped apple.
  4. Pour batter into well-oiled muffin tins, and sprinkle crumb topping on each muffin.
  5. Bake 22-25 minutes.  Let cool a few minutes before removing from tins.


  1. These muffins look yummy (and I love that they're not super-high in sugar).

  2. YUM! I think adding oatmeal to anything makes it very healthy. can't wait to try these.
