Apple Cinnamon Muffins

After taking the kids apple picking yesterday we now have more apples than we know what to do with. So expect apples in everything these upcoming weeks. 

This morning we made simple, yet delicious, apple cinnamon muffins. And the kids devoured them! It was a really quick recipe and Allie loved baking them with me. Plus who doesn't love warm muffins for breakfast. It's a win-win! 

Apple Cinnamon Muffins 

1/2 cup milk
1 egg
2 1/2 tbs sour cream 
1/2 cup applesauce 

2 cups apples, peeled and grated 

2 cups ap flour
1/2 cup white sugar 
1/4 tsp allspice
3/4 tsp cinnamon 
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract 
1/4 cup coconut oil, liquid 

Muffin tray, greased or paper lined
2 medium mixing bowls
Mixing spoons
Measuring cups/spoons 
Box grater 
Ice cream scoop or large spoon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In one bowl add flour, baking powder, salt, allspice, cinnamon and sugar. Combine well.

In the other bowl add milk, sour cream, the egg, grated apples, vanilla extract applesauce and coconut oil. Mix well. 

Combine the two bowls and mix until it just comes together. Scoop the muffin batter into the greased or lined muffin tray. Place tray into the preheated oven and bake for 23-25 minutes or until the tops are slightly golden and spongy but firm to touch. 

Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving. 

The kids really inhaled these puppies today! They are almost gone! And with the little amount of sugar in them- I'm totally ok with that!! Enjoy them! Xo
