There is something about Fall that brings outs the baking spirit in me. I don’t know if it is the fact that I can warm my house and provide delicious treats at the same time or that we are just craving some of our favorite Fall flavors. What I don’t like is counting the calories of these treats everytime I eat one. One tip I have picked up from my friends at Musselmans is to make the #applesauceswap. You swap out the oil in your recipes for the same amount of applesauce. I find this not only saves calories but leads to a delicious flavor in sweet treats. It was this inspiration that led to these delicious Musselmans AppleSauce Muffins

1 Box Pillsbury Cinnamon Swirl Quick Bread (substitute brand or flavor your prefer)

1/4 cup nuts, finely chopped (I ground them quickly in my food processor.)

1/4 cup butterscotch chips

3/4 cup water

1/4 cup Musselmans Unsweetened AppleSauce

2 Eggs


Preheat Oven to 400 Degrees.

Place cupcake liners in 12 wells of cupcake pan.

In Large bowl combine place bread mix, setting cinnamon sprinkle packet and icing packet to the side.

Add water, eggs, and applesauce.

Mix until all the mix is combined and most of the lumps have disappeared.

Gently stir in nuts and butterscotch chips.

Sprinkle in 3/4 of package of cinnamon sprinkle packet and mix in batter slightly.

Separate batter into the 12 cupcake wells, sprinkle remaining cinnamon sprinkles on top of the muffins and bake on 400 for 18-20 minutes.

Remove from oven and let cool for 2-3 minutes.

Knead icing packet 12-18 times until softened and pipe across the top of muffins.

***Hint: Best served warm but leftovers can be warmed for 10 seconds in the microwave. **
