STREUSEL-TOPPED APPLESAUCE MUFFINS

I had this recipe for many years, cutting it out of a magazine and keeping it in my recipe box to make “someday”.

I came across the recipe again by accident and thought it would be fun to finally make it, especially since it has the fresh apple-y taste of unsweetened applesauce.

The streusel topping makes it seem fancy, but these muffins are really easy to whip up for a cozy day in!
