9.11.20 Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Hello friends! It’s time for one of my fav things I’ve made recently – Apple Cinnamon Muffins! I’ve been on a real muffin kick lately, and these are so good, especially since I’m hoping if I bake fall-like foods, the fall weather will arrive. I can hope!

I used my typical muffin recipe, it’s so moist and delicious, but added some new spices – cinnamon, nutmeg – and some oats into the topping for that little something extra. I used granny smith apples for this, but you can use pretty much any apple you’d like. These are great for a quick part of a weekday breakfast, or a delicious weekend treat! They’re impressive and delicious, but not a lot of effort. My favorite combination! These also freeze beautifully, so you can always have some on hand.
