Whole Wheat Apple Muffins

Whole Wheat Apple Muffins

Fall is here and that means the best apples are available!  Every year, we go apple picking but this year we haven't had a chance to go yet.  Hoping to go soon before the season is over.  Whenever we do go, we come back with way too many apples and one of my favourite things to do with apples is to bake with them!  The muffin recipe I am sharing with you today is our favourite Apple Muffin recipe.  My eldest son loves them for breakfast.  These are choke full of apples and a lot of cinnamon flavour!  I've made a couple of changes to the original recipe.  Mainly to replace the butter with oil and change the topping to raw sugar rather than brown sugar.  I hope you give them a try soon!
