Kid Approved & Diabetic Friendly

Applesauce Muffins

Up until a couple of months ago, I was unaware of Disney’s partnership with Lilly Diabetes. Come to find out, they have created a whole bookshelf of amazing reads for families of type 1 diabetics. Yet another reason to love Disney…as if we needed one.

I purchased their Dishing It Up Disney Style cookbook and I absolutely love it! I wish I would have had it right after Carson was diagnosed! Most of the recipes are very simple, totally kid-friendly, and all have nutritional information.

The boys love it too. They poured through the pages of the cookbook telling me what I should make first, and Carson read all of the fun names (they were all Disney themed) of the recipes for Griffin.


I decided to start with these applesauce muffins (or Aurora’s Applesauce Muffins, as they are named in the book).


They were a snap to prepare and they were absolutely delicious!


They were moist, filling, and the cinnamon and apple flavors together were just amazing! Needless to say these didn’t have a very long stay at our house!

Have a safe and wonderful 4th, everyone!

Applesauce Muffins

Yield: 12 muffins

Applesauce Muffins


  • 6 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups chunky applesauce


  1. Heat the oven to 375F. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with baking cups and set aside. In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter on high for about 30 to 60 seconds; set aside to cool slightly.
  2. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt into a large mixing bowl.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together the eggs and brown sugar. Stir in the applesauce and melted butter until the mixture is smooth.
  4. Pour the apple mixture over the flour mixture. Mix with a wooden spoon until combined (it's ready when you can't see any traces of flour).
  5. Fill the baking cups about two-thirds full with batter. Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly brown.
