I found this recipe in Country Living, Official Publication of Ohio Electric Cooperative, Vol 47 No 6 (March 2005), Page 31. The recipe was written by Jennie Sanford of Sidney.

This is really good!

2 c. all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
c. raisins
c. chopped walnuts
1 large egg, slightly beaten
1 c. unsweetened applesauce
c. orange juice
3 Tbsp. canola oil

In medium mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, raisins and walnuts. Make a well in the center of dry ingredients. In a small mixing bowl, combine egg, applesauce, orange juice and oil. Add all at once to dry ingredients. Stir until moistened. (Should be lumpy.) Spray 12 muffin cups with non-stick coating or line with paper cups. Divide batter evenly among the cups. Bake in 350 degree pre-heated oven 20 minutes or until golden. Yields 12 muffins. Editor's note: Applesauce and orange juice have natural sugars.
