Healthy Apple Cinnamon Muffins
While shopping we saw apples being sold out of a truck from a local farmer. Boxes of beautiful Golden Delicious apples for only $12. We bought them up and we ate and we shared with our neighbors. But I still had over 10 apples that got soft (about a month and half later). The boys wouldn’t eat them any longer. Time to start baking. I decided to make Apple Cinnamon Muffins first.

I used to make muffins for the boys all the time and I perfected my healthy muffin base. I use greek yogurt instead of oil and have lowered the sugar content. I have also replaced half of the white flour with whole wheat flour. You can use all whole wheat flour but it will be a very dense muffin.

I don’t usually put a topping on my muffin as it does add calories but I did sprinkle a little brown sugar on top of these just to add a touch more sweetness to them.

These muffins are filled with fiber and are low calorie and delicious, my boys just ate them up.
