Apple Muffins Recipe with Cinnamon Spice
I’ve had this recipe for years. It’s one of those recipes that you can mix and match with whatever your craving, or whatever you may have on hand.
Since I have a few apples around from our apple trees, I find myself looking for ways to use them up. I’ve got lots of apple recipes on Today’s Creative Life…. because can you really have to many apple recipes? I think my all time favorite thing to do is make Slow Cooker Homemade Apple Sauce.
Mix and Match
As mentioned this recipe is easy to change. Instead of 2 cups of apples, you just add 2 cups of whatever you’d like.
- Shredded Carrots
- Dates or figs (chopped)
- Canned pumpkin
- Crushed Pineapple (drained)
- Zucchini (grated
I’ve even been so bold to add one cup of 2 choices.
I made these up a couple of weeks ago and placed them in the freezer for later. I made them with my son in mind, so he could grab one on the way to school or soccer practice.
