Apple and cinnamon are a match made in foodie heaven. Put them together in a bread, muffin, cake, and they instantly create magic, isn't it? Can I have one of those muffins please?
They look tasty. We love breakfast on the go most of the times and these muffins would be a great choice.
I am an absolute muffin fan and would definitely choose a muffin over a cup cake. I love apple muffins and the flavor of cinnamon pairs so well. I used to make it with chopped apple, but grating them is a great idea.
