Spent Grain Applesauce Muffins

I want to thank Lindsay for letting me take over the blog today. I made these muffins after a homebrew session this past weekend and thought they were good enough to share. If you’re interested, I plan on sharing the beer too if it turns out (it’ll be a few weeks before I know for...
