Musselman's Applesauce giveaway

Yes. That IS an almost empty jar of Musselman's Natural Applesauce. And yes, I was supposed to use it to make tons of delicious, transportable goodies to show you the versatility of applesauce and how healthy it can be when used as a baking substitute. But my children got a hold of the jars and I swear to you, that applesauce disappeared like candy from a pinata.

I DID manage to wrangle this jar away from them to concoct one of our favorite, transportable treats: Muffins! Did you know that you can use applesauce in place of oil for most of your breads and muffins? I usually divide the oil requirement in half. For example: if your recipe calls for 1/2 oil, use 1/4 C of oil and 1/4 C of applesauce. OR, you can just get rid of the oil altogether. Your call.

I have a banana bread recipe that I basically use for all muffins that we make. We just dumped the remainder of the applesauce, a banana, and an apple cut into bits into the batter and they were moist and delicious!

Musselman's Applesauce would like to send one reader a box of goodies to start your summer off on a healthy start! Follow the directions for the giveaway below and we'll pick the winner on May 14th!

Good luck!

  1. I also have used it in place of oil in cake mixes. But mostly TC likes to eat it right out of the jar

  2. We mostly just eat it. I'm always afraid to substitute stuff in recipes because Alex has some sensory issues & I'd hate for a change in consstency or texture to make him not eat something he loves.

  5. Oh, and we usually eat applesauce straight around here. I used to eat it all the time with pork chops as a kid. And as a substitute for oil, of course.
