Carrot Applesauce Lunchbox Muffins

Make a batch on the weekends and throw them in the lunchbox each day for a healthy, sweet snack. These hearty, mildly-sweet muffins made with whole wheat flour are a muffin you can feel good about. We taught them at our baking classes in 2019 and kids gobbled them up!
