Apple Cinnamon Muffins

I love all food, all-year round…but there is just something special about fall food.  In my house, it’s more than just the arrival of all things pumpkin spice – we must also honor and celebrate APPLES!

As you may have seen on Instagram, I ❤ apple picking and we recently came home with a big bag of gorgeous red delicious apples.  I made my favorite apple cake and apple cinnamon bread – and I’m sharing that recipe with you in portable muffin form!  It’s nothing fancy, but that’s the beauty of fall.  There is a rustic, cozy vibe about it all and I am pumped it is finally here.  Yay for fall baking!
