4 tbsp agave in the raw or honey

1 tbsp vanilla extract

Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine the applesauce, coconut oil, agave & vanilla extract in a medium size bowl.  Then, add in the flour, salt & baking soda.  Stir to fully combine.  Line a muffin tin with 12 paper liners and fill the liners about ½ way, you will use most of the batter.  Place spoonfuls of the raspberry jam on each muffin.  Then, scoop the remaining batter evenly over each muffin and stir with a knife to swirl the jam with the batter.  Sprinkle with almonds.  Bake for 25-28 minutes.  Makes 12 muffins.
