Applesauce Walnut Muffins

A nice nutty muffin, mostly moist from the amazing applesauce.

Note: If you have just finished making your applesauce and have less than 1/4 cup left over after freezing most of it in the portions you want, you can use the left-over in this recipe. You can change change the vegetable oil added to this recipe by using the left-over applesauce and adding the vegetable oil to it to make up the 1/2 cup vegetable oil. This means there will be more than a cup of applesauce in this recipe and this will make the muffins a bit denser than if you used 1/2 cup of vegetable oil but they are still very good. Do not use less than 1/4 cup of vegetable oil in this recipe.
