Cinnamon Apple Pie Muffins
Love and marriage, brings new babies…ups and downs, and challenges, yet in the end our families bring us the greatest joy. Kim is expecting her second child, (our 15th grandchild) and he is due July 20th. The week before Mother’s Day he started putting pressure on his Mom, trying to make a too early entrance into this world. After almost two weeks in the hospital, Kim was able to go home for 6 weeks of strict bed rest. Our families have worked well together to help care for this little family who lives 4 1/2 hours away from both sets of grandparents. This weekend we brought our little grandson home to see his Mom and Dad again. While here, I observed a sweet display of love given by our son, Sean. Each day before he goes to work he takes care of Kim by serving her breakfast, of course in bed. He prepares her lunch and then puts a wrapped muffin on his pillow for her treat. To me, it represents the kind of TLC that sure makes for a happier marriage.
Cinnamon Apple Pie Muffins
- 1 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1 1/4 cup flour
- 3/4 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 3/4 tsp. soda
- 1 cup applesauce, (I used unsweetened)
- 1/2 cup milk, or buttermilk
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 3 Tbsp. oil
- 10 ounces of trail mix, (any kind will do, just use your favorite)
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Combine dry ingredients and stir. Add the remaining ingredients, and mix just until dry ingredients are moistened. Spray a regular size muffin pan with non-stick spray. Fill muffin cups full. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm, or wrap with love for daily pillow-treats.
I just copied and saved this in my recipes folder. You are the best cook!! Your poor daughter, but what a sweet, considerate husband. I just love a man of honor and gentleness. 15 grands! Wow, you are so lucky.
15 grandchildren! God bless you. Great recipe-sounds like the muffins would be very moist.
These sound YUMMY!!!
Thank you for sharing this good recipe..I too love these! Bless her heart…my one daughter just went through the same type of thing, it was so hard on her. Thank goodness for family, to step in when needed and care and love the person in need. I have a daughter due the end of July too! 😀
What a sweet story. You are a wonderfully supportive mother/grandmother and that thoughtful husband is definitely earning stars in his crown. All the best to your daughter. I pray all goes well.

Your son is such a sweetie! I am going to make these muffins! I found you on a soft place to land.
Woo Hoo! I’m so glad you linked this recipe. I printed the recipe and have it sitting on my kitchen counter waiting for me to pick up the trail mix – going to Target today looking for a lampshade. I picked up the cutest, most adorable cupcake liners for them. Thanks for sharing this recipe at Woo Hoo! Wednesday! I just love your blog.
