Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made these for my toddler and he gobbled them up. I made these for my toddler and he gobbled them up. I chose to leave out the frosting, but what he doesn’t know won’t hurt him. The only thing is that they didn’t really rise, so they were very heavy “muffins.” I think next time I’ll just ball the dough onto a baking sheet and call them scones.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I tried ****** them like scones as suggested. I tried ****** them like scones as suggested. They were ok. I think they are heavy and moist because of the brown sugar, applesauce and whole wheat flour. I think next time I make them I will substitute in some white flour. I think raisins and walnuts would help them too. They are ok
