Apple Nut Muffins

Angie Kauffman
Course Bread


  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 1/3 cups applesauce
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup walnut pieces you can use pecans, if you prefer


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Combine the shredded carrots, applesauce, vegetable oil, and vanilla in large bowl.  Although I almost always used my stand mixer for recipes, I mixed this in a regular mixing bowl because it's all very easily mixed by hand.
  • Add eggs and sugar to the wet ingredients and mix well.
  • In a different bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and walnuts.  Mix these together until well blended.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients bowl.
  • Do not over mix them. Just combine them until the dry ingredients, well, until they no longer look dry.
  • Use liners with your muffin tins or grease the pan.  I use my Silpat muffin pans, so I don't use liners or have to grease the pan.  Bonus!
  • Fill each muffin well 1/2 - 3/4 full.
  • Bake muffins for 24 - 28 minutes.  Mine take right around 27 minutes, but I would definitely keep an eye on yours until you know how long they take in your oven.
  • Allow to cool and then enjoy them!
