Applesauce Raisin Ginger Muffins

A basket full of applesauce raisin ginger muffins


  • 2 cups BOB'S RED MILL whole wheat flour
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1½ cups VILLAGE CANNERY OF VERMONT unsweetened applesauce
  • ½ cup to 1 cup raisins
  • sweetened dried ginger pieces, chopped
  • sesame seeds


In large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Sift a few times to blend well. In another bowl, mix egg, oil, applesauce, raisins, and ginger pieces. Add wet mixture to dry mixture. Stir gently until just combined. Butter a 12-muffin pan. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, so the bottoms and sides of the muffins will be coated lightly with sesame seeds. Spoon batter into muffin pan. Bake at 375F for about 25 minutes, until muffins are lightly browned.

Makes 12 muffins.
