Applesauce Oatmeal Muffins

I am transferring all of the recipes from my soon to be defunct food blog to this blog!  Here's a good one!
I’ve been doing alliterated after school snacks this school year…alliterated to the day of the week.  I realize that sounds like a weird thing to do, but it’s really helped me get my act together in the snack department.  If I don’t have some semblance of a plan, I just end up tossing the girls a graham cracker and calling it good.  And, you know what?  It is good.  But, the girls get tired of it, and because it’s simple carbs, they don’t stay full and keep asking me for more and more snacks.  I’m not going to lie, that gets a tad on the annoying side when I’m fixing supper.
So, for Muffin Monday, I made these Applesauce Oatmeal Muffins (slightly adapted from Mel’s Kitchen Cafe).

I made these awhile ago with store bought applesauce, and they were good.
Then, I made them with homemade applesauce, and they were great!  I hope you have some applesauce leftover.  If not, these muffins warrant their own batch of homemade applesauce!

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Pour in the applesauce mixture. Stir until just combined.

  4. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until you poke a toothpick into a muffin and it comes out clean.

Do you have any after school snack tips, tricks, or ideas (alliterated or otherwise :) )?
