Musselman's Review and Giveaway! -- CLOSED



Hey everyone! My next review is for Musselman's. You may recall that I've done reviews for them in the past and you can check them all out here. The weather is getting nicer and nicer and hiking season is here! and Musselman's wants you to know that they have you covered for healthy snacking on your hikes.



I received an awesome hiking backpack along with:
Natural Applesauce
Original Applesauce
Cinnamon Applesauce


Not only that but they also sent some awesome recipes. Yes, you totally can use the snack packs of applesauce to snack on but carrying around applesauce can be dangerously messy if you are hiking up mountains and such. So why not use the applesauce to make Chewy Fruit Bars, Easy Low-Fat Granola, Fruit and Nut Trail Cookies, or Grandma's Spice Cookies? That's what I did! I made the Grandma's Spice Cookies, the ingredients sounded amazing and I just had to try it.



They were really easy to make, all you do is add the basics of cookies like flour, sugar, egg, etc with the natural applesauce and spice and then let them bake for only ten minutes! Pretty awesome!



I actually had to make two batches because I had only one cookie sheet. The first round, I baked them around fifteen minutes and I feel like they weren't baked enough. The second one I baked longer, maybe a half an hour or so and they browned better and tasted better. So although the recipe says ten minutes I recommend longer, but every stove is different so just keep checking the cookies. Once the cookies become a nice light golden brown then they are all delicious and ready. I definitely plan on trying the chewy fruit bars or the fruit and trail cookies soon, too. If I do make them I will definitely post pictures and let you know!

The applesauce is pretty delicious on it's own though, especially the cinnamon. It's the perfect snack when you're on the go or just when you need a delicious snack! The natural is great, too just because there is no added sugar and it still tastes delicious. I actually thought it was pretty great to have the natural added into the spice cookies because it gave the cookies a really great sweetness but also kept them most, soft, and super delicious.

Overall, Musselman's never disappoints. They make the best applesauce and just apple products ever. Definitely check them out, you won't be disappointed. Definitely check out their recipes too!
