Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Imagine waking up to the wonderful smell of cinnamon and apples. These Apple Cinnamon Muffins make a great breakfast or a wonderful afternoon snack.

These muffins are not overly sweet. I love the addition of the cinnamon topping.

I like to use whole wheat pastry flour when making muffins, I like the wholesomeness of the flour.

If you don’t have whole wheat pastry  flour, you can use all all-purpose flour or regular whole wheat flour.

These muffins are filled with chunks of fresh apples and cinnamon. Easy to make and delicious to eat.
