Spiced Apple Muffins

APPLE3I can never get enough of apples. They are so sweetly delicious on their own – and even better in dessert. Last week I felt like something fruity, soft and spongy – so I created these Clean Spiced Apple Muffins. A great one for spring – and even better to bring to your friend’s dinner party (I will have one of these over a TimTam, thank you).

As you bite into the muffin, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the chunks of apple that provide a fruity hit. Especially when they are mixed through cinnamon and nutmeg spices – mmm. Warning – these are addictive! Enjoy in moderation (if you can) ūüėČ xx
