Applesauce Muffins (Dairy, Gluten and Refined Sugar Free)

By Irene Shaver @hhwife
Our new home has blessed us with a couple apple trees.  It apparently is a good apple year, as there is a lot of fruit on these trees.  This weekend, my mom came over to help pick apples and make some applesauce.  She reminded me of a recipe she had for apple sauce muffins which I figured would be a great recipe to create.   I really liked the results and will definitely be making these more often.  They were great for breakfast or to take along as a snack.
