Applesauce Cinnamon Muffins-4

2 cups whole wheat flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt (optional)

1 tsp cinnamon

½ tsp ground allspice

½ cup date paste (see tips)

1½ cups applesauce

½ cup water

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp apple cider vinegar

½ cup apple, diced

½ cup raisins (optional)

1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2 In large bowl, mix together all dry ingredients: whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and allspice.

3 In medium bowl, whisk together apple sauce, water, vanilla, vinegar, and date paste (if using).

4 Pour well-blended wet mixture into large bowl with dry ingredients.

5 Peel and dice ½ cup apples, add to bowl, along with raisins, and mix well.

6 Spoon batter into a silicon muffin baking non-stick pan or paper muffin cups. I recommend the silicon pan because these seem to stick to paper cups after baking. Place in oven and bake for 25 minutes.

7 Remove from oven, allow to cool, and serve.

You can make your own date paste at home using this recipe

You can substitute coconut sugar for the date paste.
