Applesauce Spice Muffins DD

Yummy muffins! They sure don't taste like they have squash in them!

I'm now experimenting with my own Deceptively Delicious recipes! I have a whole freezer full of vegetable purees thanks to my parent's garden. Muffins are a great place to hide vegetables.

The kids loved them! Okay, I'm sure it had something to do with the chocolate chips, especially the double dose of chocolate chips! When one kid gets to pour the chocolate chips and the other freaks out, sometimes the solution is just more chocolate chips instead of a big discussion about how life isn't fair.

  1. These look fantastic! How do you get muffins to not stick to your pan without using paper muffin cups?

    And have you compared Deceptively Delicious with The Sneaky Chef? I have the Sneaky Chef, but wonder if it's worth getting the other book too.
