Zucchini Bread Apple Cinnamon Muffins Recipe (Using Wacky Apple Applesauce)

The other day I baked up some zucchini bread apple cinnamon muffins for the kids for breakfast and to have on hand for healthy school snacks.

Healthier option using applesauce instead of oil.

It is so easy to just grab a muffin and go if they are made and sitting on the counter.  And so much healthier than a bag of chips.

I’ve shared my Zucchini Bread Muffins Recipe with you, but I switched it up a little to add apples and more cinnamon PLUS switched out the oil for applesauce to try some variety and make it a little healthier.

I used an organic cinnamon applesauce made in Colorado called Wacky Apple in place of the oil.  Yum!

Love using local products!

 

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tspn salt
  • 1 tspn baking powder
  • 1 tspn baking soda
  • 3 tspn cinnamon
  •  1  3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (Great tip for softening hard brown sugar.)
  • 3 tspn vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup cinnamon applesauce (I used Wacky Apple)
  • 1   1/2 cups grated zucchini
  • 1 cup diced apple

Directions:

  1. Combine flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and baking powder in a bowl.
  2. In separate bowl, beat together eggs, applesauce, vanilla, and sugar.
  3. Slowly add dry ingredients to the second bowl until they are well mixed together.
  4. Add zucchini and apples.
  5. Add batter to muffin tins (with cupcake liners).
  6. Bake about 30min at 325deg (until top is firm and lightly brown).

The tops are slightly crunchy and the muffin is sweet, but not overly so.  They make a great breakfast on the go!  Makes approx. 2 1/2 dozen.

If you have any grated zucchini left, try adding it to this carrots and cilantro recipe.

*Disclosure:  I was given a jar of Wacky Apple cinnamon applesauce to review.

  1. Substituted eggs with flaxmeal+water because I was out of eggs, added 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (could have added more), and used mini loafs pan. Added a few minutes to cook time for loafs. Super good, a little gooey, but I don’t want to overcook so I’m ok with a little gooey. Really really very tasty!!!! I love the apples!
