Vegan applesauce muffins for a breakfast favorite on Meatless Monday

My grandmother made some of the best comfort food I've ever tasted -- and these homemade applesauce muffins are one of my favorites. I loved rolling out of bed at her house to the smell of fresh-baked muffins ready to be dipped in butter, cinnamon and sugar, and scarfed in preparation for the day. She always used her homemade applesauce -- which makes everything so much better -- in the muffins; I modernized the recipe (with started with my mom's college roommate) by replacing the milk, egg and butter with vegan options so that my plant-based compatriots can enjoy them, too!
