Apple Muffins

Warm apple, cinnamon, and nutmeg flavors make these muffins tasty. Plus, your house will smell delicious while they are baking! These muffins are sweet enough to be a dessert (although they have half as much sugar as a traditional recipe), but have enough fiber and protein to be a filling and satisfying snack. If you have them along side a smoothie or yogurt, they make a well rounded breakfast too.

  • Use a whisk to combine the dry ingredients.
