Our place never runs out of apples! Simply, because apples are one of the few fruits which my NJ likes taking with him to school in his lunch box.
You can make so many easy and great cakes, cookies or muffins with apples. Especially, now on autumn/winter season, I enjoy making all kind of different recipes with apples. Actually, I love baking with apples because of the heavenly smell which fills your home…and the touch of cinnamon…mmmhhh…I love that combo!
This Easy Moist Apple Muffins recipe of mine is so simple to make and a great snack to put into your lunch box. They’re packed with great flavors and you can experiment with the ingredients in this recipe. If you don’t like putting nuts into your muffins you can completely leave them out or add raisins instead. You can also just cut the sugar if it seems too sweet for your taste.
This recipe is so uncomplicated and foolproof.
I made these with my 7 year old son and the 20 muffins didn’t last very long on our kitchen counter. I personally think that they taste better the next day after storing them in an airtight container.
My Mom likes eating them right after baking while still hot.
Either way, these are a great and quick snack which I’m sure many of you will enjoy! 🙂
