Chocolate Cinnamon Applesauce Muffin Recipe

This quick and easy chocolate muffin recipe stays moist because it is made with applesauce. A light sprinkling of cinnamon and nutmeg along with cocoa and raisins makes this a delicious muffin recipe.

They taste almost like cupcakes, but with a bit more spice and a crustier muffin top.

Who doesn’t like a bit of chocolate for breakfast? The children will think these are an especially fun treat!

Serve these chocolate muffins warm for breakfast or brunch with a pat of butter or a soft cream cheese spread.

You almost won’t know you are eating a muffin with the wonderful chocolate flavor in these treats. Add in some raisins for good measure and you can pass these off as dessert.
