Apple Spice Muffins- a healthier treat

It's the eve of Halloween!

I really have no super exciting plans- I'm going to take Princess Wiener to my sister's house to give out candy with her and her hubby, but that's about it. Every year my school does a school-wide Monster Mash in the cafeteria before the bell rings for the day. It's SUPER cute.

While these muffins don't scream Halloween, they are a great fall treat. Plus since I replaced the oil with applesauce and they have real slices of apples hidden inside, they're a tad healthier than the average muffin.
