Molasses Cookie Muffins

7

These healthy-ish whole wheat muffins are designed with classic molasses cookies in mind, and are sweetened with whole cane sugar and honey!

24
1/3 cup butter, very soft (almost to the point of melting)
1/4 cup applesauce
2/3 cup whole cane sugar (I used Sucanat)
1/4 cup honey
3/4 cup unsulphured molasses (not blackstrap, unless you like bitter muffins)
1 egg
2 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
3/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or regular skim milk)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly grease or line 18-20 muffin cups. In a large bowl, beat butter, applesauce, cane sugar, and honey together until blended. Add molasses and egg and beat...
