Not from scratch but just as good. These muffins are a much healthier version as well. They include some fresh veggies and applesauce to replace some of the oil. They are a great way to get some veggies in your kids. Need a quick and easy recipe in a hurry? This is the one for you. Recipe is my own.

    You can leave these plain but they are DELICIOUS with cream cheese frosting. To stick with the theme of making it super easy, when cooled completely you can frost cupcakes with canned creme cheese frosting or you can make a homemade cream cheese frosting. Enjoy! Here is my recipe for a WONDERFUL cream cheese frosting that includes pudding and cool whip. https://www.justapinch.com/recipes/dessert/cake/cream-cheese-pudding-cool-whip-frosting-annettes.html
