Apple a Day 4- Apple Butterscotch Muffins

This next installment of applicious foods is one with both applesauce and diced apples.  The recipe calls for 3/4C of diced apples but we nearly doubled it.  It was an exciting day in the 6 foot kitchen yesterday as I had a special guest Alex join me to cook and bake.  We decided on the recipes on Friday and I was able to get fresh veggies for the soup earlier in the morning from the farmers market (recipe to come later with the pumpkin spice cake balls we made).   I was also able to slice and dice most of the veggies ahead of time to make things a little less hectic.  This recipe came from another blog taken from another blog and although it was hard to find butterscotch chips in the grocery store, they totally steal the show in the recipe.


Apple Butterscotch Muffins

2½ cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
1¼ tsp. ground cinnamon
¾ cup old-fashioned oats
8 tbsp. unsalted butter, at room temperature
½ cup packed brown sugar
2/3 cup applesauce
2 large eggs
1½ tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup milk
¾ cup butterscotch chips
¾ cup chopped apples
1/3 cup toasted pecans, chopped

Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes.  This was the only difference in the two blogs.  Sugar Plum noted to use the jumbo muffin tin and bake 30 minutes if that is your sort of thing.  Annie’s Eats said to bake 18-20 which is a typical baking time.  I know this because I grew up “baking” boxed blueberry muffins weekly and still have the instructions memorized baking “18-22 minutes or until golden brown.”

You can look into the other blogs for their pictures, but mine were amazing and the only differences were doubling the spices and apples.  I also topped with cinnamon sugar which made them even better!
