I used to make these muffins a lot when Evie was a toddler and she loved them. I tried them again after not making them for a coupe of years and she no longer likes them. She really doesn’t like raisins in things and I knew that before I made this recipe. I thought that since they were finely chopped that she wouldn’t really know they were there. I was wrong. Maybe your toddler will like them…..
Preheat oven to 350F.
1 cup all purpose flour
1tsp baking soda
1tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup lightly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 finely diced apple
1/2 cup finely chopped raisins
In a large bowl combine dry ingredients, except sugar.
In another bowl combine wet ingredients with sugar.
Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Stir in apples and raisins.
Spoon batter inro lightly greased mini muffin tins (or you can use regular sized tins). Bake 8-10 minutes (20 mins if using regular sized).
Let cool a few minutes in pan then turn out onto a wire rack to cool.

I need to try these. My toddlers do like raisins in things–and I love that this recipe uses applesauce. I bet they’re very moist.
I don’t have a toddler but I know I would love these.
Have a happy day.
