What do you make when you don't have milk, eggs, butter and you don't want yogurt or dry cereal? Applesauce olive oil muffins!!!!

These dense muffins are super yummy and have lots of cinnamon and apples!!! They are good for vegans (not that I am anywhere close to being a vegan) because they contain no eggs or butter.

Enjoy!! I know Sydney will be happy when she sees them :)


1/2 cup applesauce - any flavor combo, but I like plain the best
1/3 c olive oil
1 1/2 c all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 c sugar
1 green apple peeled and finely chopped


Preheat oven to 375. Grease or line muffin pan (recipe makes 12 muffins)

Combine apple, applesauce and olive oil. Set aside.

Combine dry ingredients.

Add dry mixture to apple mixture until a wet batter forms. This batter will be thick, so don't worry. These are pretty dense, but moist muffins.

Bake for 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Berry Crumble

Wow!!! I seriously haven't published anything on here in a while!!!!

So right to the new favorite recipe is this berry crumble I discovered. I abolutely LOVE it!! I have made it for work, church and for ladies nights at our house. You can use just one type of berry or a mixture. My favorite is just plain blackerries. Also the recipe calls for vanilla extract, but I was out of that the other day and subsituted lemon and it was amazing!!! Especially if you use blue or blackberries.

I hope ya'll enjoy it as much as I enjoy making it for my friends!!!

This was my last one. It was a double batch for church!!!


6 tbsp melted butter (unsalted) melted and 1/2 c room temp butter
1 3/4 c all purpose flour
1/2 c packed light brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 c powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla (or lemon if you prefer) extract
2 large eggs
about one cup berry of choice (it doesn't matter if it's more)


Preheat oven to 350. Grease or spray 8 x 8 baking dish.

Topping: combine melted butter and brown sugar. Add 1 cup of flour and mix with fork until moist crumbs form. Refrigerate until ready to use

In separate bowl mix together remaining flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

In an electric mixer (with the whisk attatchment, start low and increase to high speed) beat room temp butter, sugar and extract until light and fluffy. Mix in eggs one at a time. Reduce speed and combine flower mixture until batter is smooth.

Pour batter into pan and spread level. Sprinkle berries on top. Sprinkly crumb topping on top of berries and batter. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until toothpick can be stuck in and come out clean.
