Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease or spray mini muffin pan with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, mix together the first five ingredients.
In a large bowl mix the applesauce, warm milk, oil and syrup.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet, mix until there are no dry spots. Over mixing will make your muffins tough.
Fill the muffin tin almost to the top.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until muffins spring back when touched.
While the muffins are baking mix together the sugar ans cinnamon in a medium bowl.
When muffins are done, allow the to cool slightly enough to handle them.
Turn them out of the pan and roll them in the sugar mixture, coating them completely.
If you are using the butter or oil, dip them in the butter or oil before rolling them in the sugar.
Allow to cool completely on serving dish or if you are like me you may want to try a few while they are still warm.
Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge, that's if you have leftovers.
Have Fun and Enjoy!
