Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly grease a twelve-muffin tin or add muffin liners to a muffin tin.
In a large bowl, sift together the dry ingredients: flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, salt, and the spices.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients: applesauce, milk, oil, and maple syrup. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix.
Fill the muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake in the preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Let them cool down for 5-10 minutes before removing from the muffin tin. Yields 12 muffins.
