Applesauce muffins offer a delightful moist texture without the added sugars and fattier ingredients that one might expect in such a rich dessert. Applesauce leaves you feeling fuller, and it’s healthier as an addition to most baked goods, which is why we would recommend this muffin recipe to everyone who is counting calories and sugar. The best part is that all you need to infuse this delicious snack is a small amount of cannabutter, and before you know it, a regular muffin recipe mix turns into a fast and easy edibles dish that you will want to keep stashed away for later use.

    This muffin recipe is really easy, but don’t let that fool you, as these delightful treats can be silently potent if you use a well-concentrated cannabutter for the infusion. A general rule of thumb is to stick to only one edible treat per guests and to set a limit of one every 2 hours to regulate consumption. Though it might not taste like it at first, as these fluffy muffins are naturally sweet which masks the traditional cannabis flavor quite well, ultimately resulting is a perfect snack that is easy to overconsume.

    The effects of these edibles, just like any other, can be challenging to predict, but in general, are typically more intense and longer-lasting when compared to smoking, so ensure to start low and go slow as you build your confidence and tolerance to these cannabis-infused goods.
