Applesauce Muffins with Mini Cinnamon Chips

Applesauce Muffins with Mini Cinnamon Chips
      These muffins.  Life altering.  No. Joke.  If you want your life to truly be fulfilled you will make them immediately!  I have made these babies a few times, thinking I would take pictures of them, but alas, there have been none left to take pictures of!  Yes, they make 18.  And yes, My Giant and I ate almost all of them (Little Giant helped too). No judging.
      If you have not tried the sweet glory that is Cinnamon Chips, I beg you to try them.  They are a pantry staple at our house.  I use them in my Giant Fluffy Cinnamon Rolls, and have used them in a hot chocolate bar as well.  They add just the right amount of sweet goodness.  I used mini cinnamon chips in these muffins, but they can be hard to find for some.  I typically buy mine at my local Bosch Center, but they can be purchased online at Amazon or King Arthur.  Lately, I have spotted regular cinnamon chips at the grocery store, which would work well also.  I just tend to like everything in mini form.  All food is better in mini form, right?
