Autumn Apple Muffins



September 22 is the first official day of Fall, so welcome the season with the warm flavors of apple and cinnamon. These apple muffins are mostly healthy and make a great breakfast to start the day, or you can wrap them in the muffin wrappers for a school celebration or brunch. This is a simple recipe mixed by hand, so the kids can do most of the work.
