Whole Wheat Applesauce & Oatmeal Muffins

I have tried quite a few recipes out there for the perfect muffin. Most I tried with whole wheat were terrible dry or too heavy. After countless tries I am happy to report that I have combined a few recipes and added a few ingredients to make the most perfect moist and yummy muffins.

I hope you love them as much as my family does!



** Please also note that this recipe is for a pretty big batch as we like to freeze some for lunches.
