Whole Wheat Applesauce Muffins with Maple Glaze

After reading the post about these healthy muffins on Cooking with Aunt Juju, I made them the next morning! I had to have the maple glaze- my daughter was in complete agreement. 🙂

The original recipe used amazing homemade applesauce in the muffins… I didn’t have time for that on such short notice. 😉 I used Trader Joe’s organic unsweetened applesauce instead. (Next time I’ll have to try the homemade- I’m sure it would be fabulous.) I also modified the recipe to include whole wheat flour, use one whole egg, one percent milk, and coarse salt. I also had to increase the amount of maple syrup in the glaze. 🙂

The maple glaze adds something special, sweet, and indulgent to a healthy, whole grain base. A wonderful balance! These muffins are a perfect autumn breakfast.

For the Applesauce Muffins:

  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp coarse salt, to taste
  • 1 cup unsweetened organic applesauce
  • 1/2 cup 1% milk
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 3 T canola oil
  • 1 large egg
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F on convection.
  2. In a large bowl combine the oats, flours, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl beat together the applesauce, milk, brown sugar, oil, and egg.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix just until moistened.
  5. Spoon into greased muffin tins and bake for 16 minutes on convection, or up to 20 minutes in a standard oven. Remove, cool and make the glaze.

For the Maple Syrup Glaze:

  • 1 T butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar, sifted
  • 3 1/2 T pure maple syrup
  1. Combine ingredients. Drizzle over muffins once they have cooled.
