My muffin of the week is an Applesauce Muffin. I added some dried blueberries into the batter but you can add any dried fruit you would like. I also garnished each muffin with a slice of fresh mango.

INGREDIENTS

3/4 cup whole wheat flour

1/4 cup spelt light flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp sea salt

2 tbsp ground flax seeds

1/3 cup oil – safflower oil or coconut oil melted

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce

1/4 cup kiju grape apple juice

2 large organic eggs

1/2 cup dried fruits

1/2 mango cut in small slices

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line and spray a 12 cup muffin tray or use silicone liners. In a bowl mix both flours, baking powder, cinnamon, sea salt and ground flax seeds. In a separate bowl mix oil, sugar and eggs together. Mix 1/2 the dry mixture to the wet mixture and then add half the unsweetened apple sauce and grape apple juice and blend once again. Blend the remaining dry ingredients to wet ingredients and then once again mix remaining unsweetened applesauce and grape apple juice into batter. Add dried fruits and scoop batter into muffin cups. Garnish each muffin with a slice of mango. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Take muffin tray out of oven and let sit for 5 minutes. Transfer muffins to cooling rack and cool for 10-15 minutes. Enjoy!
