Applesauce Oatmeal Muffins

I’m a big fan of breakfast. I’ve even been known to be a little grumpy in the morning before I’ve eaten. Breakfast is a little trickier in China because I don’t love the milk here. It’s fine when used in baking or as an ingredient in sauce, but on it’s own and cold – there’s just something weird about it. In an effort to mix-up my morning routine I’ve been on the search for new muffin recipes.

I think I found a winner in these Applesauce Oatmeal Muffins. They are dense and light at the same time with a hint of spice from the cinnamon. I especially love the crunchy oatmeal topping, I knew I would so I automatically doubled it and I’m glad I did and I’m keeping it that way in the recipe below! Oh, and even if sounds a little weird, I really like them with a little pat of cream cheese.:)
