Apple Raisin Mini Muffins

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…..

  1. 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.

  2. I don’t have a toddler but I know I would love these.
    Have a happy day.
