Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Grease 12 standard muffin-pan cups, or line cups with fluted paper liners.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Stir in the oats. In a medium bowl, mix the applesauce, milk, molasses, brown sugar, oil and egg with a fork until blended. Stir in the carrots and prunes. Add the applesauce mixture to the flour mixture and stir just until the flour is moistened (the batter will be lumpy).

Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin-pan cups (the muffin cups will be full). Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 23 to 25 minutes. Immediately remove the muffins from the pan. Serve the muffins warm, or cool on a wire rack to serve later.

    These are moist but will try maple syrup next time instead for a different flavor. Substituted applesauce for the oil in order to reduce fat content. Will definitely make again. Niceto have as a filling afternoon snack.

    This is really a great and easy recipe. I added some chopped dates as well as the prunes and cut the sugar a bit. For a nice treat when wanting something sweet I spread a bit of cream cheese on the muffin. Dessert!

    Very good. Not real sweet, and not as bread-like as most muffins. You can certainly tell they are healthy. But in a good way. I also omitted the oil. Be careful not to over bake; mine were completely done at the 23 minute point, and could have stood a little less time in the over.
