Applesauce Puffs

The kids made it through their first week of school, and let me tell you it was quite an adjustment period for them! But it was especially rough on my son, he had turned into a night owl during summer, and the 6 am wake-up call was a pretty hard on him for a few days, combine that with baseball practice every evening and I had a very tired kiddo on my hands.  So, on Friday I decided to make Applesauce Puffs as a special after-school treat to celebrate the fact we all survived the first week back to school.

I love Applesauce Puffs for a quick after school snack, they are so easy to mix up and get into the oven, and the kids LOVED eating them.  They are amazing right after you dip the tops into the cinnamon sugar topping, but for the kids that came home on the later bus , we popped them in the microwave for 8-10 seconds and they tasted like a freshly baked cinnamon-sugar donut, SO GOOD!

Applesauce Puffs can be made with Homemade Baking Mix, one of my all time favorite Homemade Pantry Staples. But if you already have Bisquick on hand, by all means use it, just make sure when you are out to try my DIY version 😉
