Apple Sauce Muffins

So, as you already know, I had a grand plan for August. It's going pretty well. Something that I knew would happen, but I didn't write down, is that we would end up out and skip some of those meals. So just in case you think we're being super duper healthy and all, please know that we ate pizza at Sam's and hotdogs last week as well as some of the things I planned. But like I said, overall, it's working pretty well.
There's a little line in our August plan about snacks, and oh, my goodness! There should be a whole paragraph about them. I don't know if it's just that it's summer or what, but we go through the snacks! Yesterday morning after breakfast I made a batch of my apple sauce muffins thinking that would take us through the rest of the week for snacks. We consumed 12 muffins yesterday in between meals. How did that happen? They are good and pretty good for us too, so I'm not going to worry too much about it. Here's the recipe if you'd like to try them on your crowd too.

Olivia's Apple Sauce Muffins
3/4 cup oil
1/4 cup flax seed
1 1/2 (+ or -) brown sugar
1/4 cup pureed veggie (I had some pureed carrot frozen and threw it in.)
2 cups of non-sweetened apple sauce
3 cups whole wheat flour
2 t. baking soda
1 cup old fashioned oats
(You can also add in several finely chopped apples if you like)
Mix all ingredients together and scoop into greased or papered muffin cups. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Makes 24 muffins.
