Apple Cinnamon Muffins



I am in love with this muffin recipe! I love making muffins homemade; I must have the taste of real apple and cinnamon in a muffin-- it is a HUGE difference than a fake flavored mix! I feel I should warn you that once you make these you will have a hard time purchasing the store mixes! I understand how time consuming it can be to make food from scratch and that is why most of America has turned to everything being made from a pre-packaged mix.  I am not super woman so I have to tell you if I didn't make these up on a day that I set aside to do them, there is about a 100 percent chance I would never make them in the morning before I go to work! I am at work by 7:30 A.M. so I am very pressed for time most mornings. My answer to this problem is... I make my muffins up and freeze them so that we can have them anytime we want muffins for breakfast.
I love this recipe because you can't really mess it up!

Recipe
3/4 c milk
1/2 c applesauce(or oil)
1 egg
2 c all purpose flour
1/2 c sugar
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 med apple pared and chopped
1/4 c chopped walnuts(optional)
Beat first three ingredients.
Stir in apple


Add remaining ingredients and mix.
Sprinkle cinnamon on top.  

  
                        
Pour in a greased 12 cup muffin pan or 24 cup mini muffin pan. An ice cream scoop works great for the 12 cup standard muffin pan and a cookie scoop works great for the mini muffins. 


Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.
To freeze your muffins - completely cool muffins and store in a freezer bag! I always double my recipe and make some to eat and then freeze the second batch.



Enjoy!
