  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375. Line a muffin tin with muffin wrappers or grease your muffin pan. In a large bowl combine flour, rye flakes, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cardamom and ginger.
  2. In a medium bowl combine applesauce, buttermilk, sugar, oil, egg and vanilla extract. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in your wet applesauce mixture. Stir until just moist.
