Whole Wheat Muffins

This week I decided to try a healthier variety of muffin (a weekend full of cookouts and eating out will do that to a girl). I used a few different recipes as inspiration to come up with this super easy muffin. It really made the house smell fantastic and I'm hoping I'll feel less guilty if I decide to grab 2 one morning instead of 1 ;)

Whole Wheat Muffins

2 cups White Whole Wheat Flour (I use King Arthur)
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup and 2 tbsp applesauce
1 egg

Line muffin tin with liners and preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

In a medium bowl sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon. Next add the sugar to the flour mixture and blend. In another medium bowl (or your standing mixer) blend the milk, applesauce and egg. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix just until blended.

Scoop the batter into a muffin tin (about 1/3 cup into each cup). Bake at 400 degrees for 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
