Musselman's Review and Giveaway

You all might not realize, but applesauce is perfect for using in your favorite baked goods. Not only is the delicious and flavorful applesauce perfect for healthy snacking, it's delicious in your favorite cookies and cakes. My favorite way to use Musselman's applesauce is to substitute it for vegetable oil in baking. By doing this, you cut down on the fat, but your sweet treats turn out moist and fantastic!



At Musselman's, they believe making healthy, delicious apple sauce is more than just a job. It's a way of life. That's why the growers who have spent their entire lives nurturing and harvesting apples also own the company. Musselman's has a variety of different flavored apple sauces, apple butter, apple juices, and more. They are your apple headquarters! As you all might know, I'm a Musselman's ambassador and I regularly love to indulge in a very cold cup of cinnamon applesauce!

Musselman's recently sent me a package full of apple goodness. I received a nice, roomy Musselmans branded backpack that would be great for travel or camping, a large jar of applesauce, and two packs of original and cinnamon applesauce. I was also sent recipe cards with some delicious applesauce themed treats such as chewy fruit bars, easy low fat granola and Grandma's spice cookies. I was in apple paradise with this package!



I was taking the cinnamon applesauce cups to work to enjoy as a mid-day snack. The applesauce is thick, rich and bursting with delicious cinnamon flavor. I love that you can see the specks of cinnamon in the applesauce. The flavor of the sauce is not too cinnamon-y, it's a subtle, sweet taste that is addictive!

I decided to use the large jar of original applesauce in creating Grandma's spice cookies, from the recipe cards that I was sent. The recipe was very easy to follow and you add in normal cookie ingredients (flour, sugar, etc.) and then you add in baking spices and the applesauce and you're good to go! Just bake for about 10 minutes. The best part was that my entire kitchen smelled like baked apples! Once the cookies were done, I couldn't wait to try one. They came out looking great and were perfectly round and golden brown. I love warm cookies, it's definitely a weakness of mine. The sweet treats were chewy and full of out of this world apple flavor due to the applesauce. The spice was prevalent, but the flavor didn't overwhelm the apple flavor. I added in extra applesauce when I baked them for a more prominent flavor. You could definitely taste the spice flavor and it complimented the notes of apple well. These cookies were gone within a few days. I'll have to make them again soon!

Life is always much sweeter when combined with Musselman's applesauce. :)
