Cinnamon Apple Muffins




We call have to splurge a little sometimes right? Whether it be that new pair of shoes at the mall or that new surround sound system you've been eyeing for months. The same thing goes in the kitchen. For the most part I have been eating a healthier data when compared to my college days.

Then came these...


Enjoy.


Cinnamon Apple Muffins

1 Fuji Apple – peeled and diced
1 ½ cups AP Flour
1 ¼ Teaspoon Baking Powder

2/3 cup Whole Milk

2.     Line a muffin pan with muffin cups
3.     In a large bowl, combine the AP flour, baking powder and salt.
4.     In a medium bowl, whisk the apple, butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, eggs, vanilla, and milk.
