Cinnamon Applesauce Muffins: delicious and simple muffins that are bursting with a sweet cinnamon flavor. Cinnamon applesauce muffins are now one of my families new favorite go-to-muffins. We love all kinds of muffins like our Banana Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins, Lemon Poppyseed Muffins and even our Gingerbread Muffins. These cinnamon applesauce muffins are moist, bursting with a cinnamon flavor and come together really quickly. They go great with your dinner time meals or breakfast in the morning. I swapped coconut sugar for regular table sugar but you can still use table sugar if you prefer. I like using coconut sugar when i'm baking because I don't notice a change in taste and coconut sugar doesn't spike your blood sugar as much as table sugar. It tends to be a bit of a healthier option...but remember sugar is still sugar.
As soon as these muffins come out of the oven and have the chance to cool slightly, dip them in some melted butter and then in a cinnamon sugar mixture. Once the muffins cool, the cinnamon sugar becomes a fun crunch that my kids just love. My younger son has a tendency to eat the top part of the muffin before he eats the rest.
