apple cinnamon muffins

With the abundance of apples overflowing in boxes on our counters, we've resorted to making some tasty apple filled treats. Which is a good thing, because I've found all sorts of yummy recipes to try out. Some have to be adapted to be gluten free, but in the case of these muffins, they were made that way from the start. Sweet and filling with an undertone of cinnamon, the muffins are delectable, especially with the bits of apple sprinkled throughout the batter.

Apple Cinnamon Muffins
2 1/2 cups Pamela's Baking Flour
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
2 Eggs
1 cup chopped apples
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon

This recipe is really very simple. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine all the dry ingredients and stir together, then in a separate bowl, mix the wet ingredients together. Pour the wet ingredients in with the dry and mix. Peel, core, and cut the apples into small chunks, then gently fold them into the batter. Fill the muffin tins three fourths of the way and put in the oven to bake for 18-20 minutes. Serve with a glass of milk or some tea, and enjoy!

Like I said, a simple and really lovely recipe that's a perfect start to any morning. Especially with fall weather coming, these muffins are hearty, yet light enough, to add a bit of warmth to your day. The only problem at our house is how to make them last longer than a few minutes. As soon as I pulled them out of the oven, I was surrounded by a swarm of hungry kiddos holding up plates. Whatever the case in your home, make sure to share the fall muffins with family and friends!

Edited to add:I'm not sure how to make this recipe non-gluten free. Sorry friends!
