Apple Cinnamon Muffins

These muffins are delicious… full of moist apple chunks and cinnamon! Plus 2 out of 3 kids approved! The one who didn’t just wasn’t a fan of the apple pieces. These muffins require one extra step than normal and that is sauteing the apples and cinnamon in a pan for a few minutes to soften them before they are added to the batter. The recipe below makes 24 muffins but it could easily be cut in half!
