Save money by freezing Quaker Oatmeal Applesauce Muffins!
I love making muffins at home, because they are a nice money saver. Muffins in the store are EXPENSIVE and they just don’t taste as great as homemade.
If you want to really save on time, make a lot and then freeze them. That way you can just pull out the amount you need.
I thaw and heat them up in the microwave in just a minute. This is so convenient during busy mornings when everyone is trying to get out the door for school and work.
Let’s get started making these easy applesauce muffins!

Ingredients for easy applesauce muffins:
- Oats ( I used quick oats)
- Brown Sugar
- Baking powder and baking soda
- vanilla extract
Now for my favorite part…..the Streusal Topping:
- butter or margarine
- brown sugar
How to make oatmeal applesauce muffins?
First, preheat the oven to 400F. Spray muffin liners with non-stick cooking spray.
Next, make the streusel topping: mix oats, brown sugar and cinnamon together. Once combined, cut in butter. I use 2 butter knives and literally “cut” the butter into the mixture.
When you are done your streusel should resemble small crumbles.
For the muffins, mix together dry ingredients: oats through salt. Slowly mix in applesauce, milk, oil, vanilla and egg. Stir until well combined.
Use a large baking scoop to fill prepared muffin cups 3/4 full. Spring a generous amount of streusel on the top of each muffin.
Bake at 400F for 15 to 18 minutes or until cooked through.
Applesauce oatmeal muffins turned out great!
I was pleasantly surprised at how well these Oatmeal Applesauce Muffins turned out. I am not much of a muffin person, but I really like these.
The rest of my family loved them, too! I am going to make a double batch next time so I can stock the freezer.
These will be perfect for a quick breakfast and everyone just loves these applesauce muffins. If you want to try a few new things, try adding flax seed or dried cranberries to the muffin mix.
Another option to try is wheat flour. I have even mixed half regular flour and half wheat flour and no one even noticed.
Everyone loves these and the applesauce makes the muffins so moist and flavorful. They are sure to be a hit with your family.
You can also use wheat flour and coconut oil as substitutions in this recipe for applesauce muffins.
If you need more muffin cups, why not invest in some silicone baking cups. I love mine and they really do save you money in the long run.
Another thing I love to use is these baking scoops. I love these and they are so handy!
I use the largest baking scoop for muffins and cupcakes. They come in a set so they are perfect for all sorts of recipes.
They are very inexpensive and typically come in a set with different sizes. Amazon has some cookie scoops for very cheap. I have the three pack so that I can use these for cookies, cupcakes, muffins and even meatballs.
You can also make mini muffins. These would be fun for a party or really any time! If you don’t have a mini-muffin pan, I highly suggest you get one.
Mini muffins just simply taste great. They are faster to cook and easier to eat.
As you can see this recipe is so versatile and can be made several different ways. Your family will never get tired of this recipe with all of these delicious ideas!
