Applesauce and Oatmeal Muffins


1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup white flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1 large egg
1/2 cup sweetened applesauce
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup old fashioned oats


Preheat oven to 375 degrees and fill a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners. Set aside. In large bowl, put all ingredients in the order given except the oats. Combine well with large spoon and then gently "fold" in the oats. Distribute evenly between the paper liners and bake for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of one of the muffins comes out clean. Remove from oven. Let cool five minutes and then transfer to wire rack to finish cooling. Makes 12 muffins.
