I am sorry the picture is out of focus, but I had to post these muffins. They are very, very good. A bit high in sugar, but I suggest using raw sugar (it makes me feel a little better when indulging in a recipe like this one ;)).
1 cup raw sugar
3/4 cup safflower oil (or your choice of cooking oil)
3/4 cup applesauce
3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
3/4 cup unbleached white flour
1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon cloves
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup of raisins or walnuts (or half and half) (optional)
Beat together eggs, sugar, oil and applesauce. Add all dry ingredients and mix just until blended. Stir in raisins and/or nuts. Fill muffin tins. If you like you can sprinkle 1 teaspoon of brown sugar on top of each muffin. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 - 20 minutes. Enjoy!
