Blackberry Applesauce Muffins March 8, 2014

These actually were supposed to be blueberry applesauce muffins, but since I had some frozen blackberries on hand—I went with what I had!  These are low-fat, very moist thanks to the applesauce, and the oats give them a nice texture.  I also like oats in baked goods because they give you a longer-lasting “fullness.”  I have been trying to make some healthier breakfast baked goods.  My daughter loves muffins and I like knowing what’s going into what’s going into her!  She gives these two toddler thumbs’ up!

  Blueberry Applesauce Muffin




  • 1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/4 cups oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp canola oil (I used the almond oil I had on hand)
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup blackberries (or blueberries—fresh or frozen)


1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2.  Place silicone muffin liners in a muffin tin.  Or, line a 12 cup muffin tin with paper cases or spray with nonstick cooking spray.

3.  In a large bowl combine flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. In a medium bowl combine applesauce, buttermilk, sugar, oil and egg. Make a well in dry ingredients and add applesauce mixture. Stir until just moist. Fold in blueberries. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full.  I used my handy-dandy cookie scoop!

4.  Bake for 16-18 minutes.
