Apple Cinnamon Muffins

So I like apples. I found this apple muffin recipe on Pinterest. Really, who doesn't love Pinterest??! I was skeptical at first...which was a while ago. Now, over 1,000 pins later, I still like it. Anyways, this recipe was a success. Delicious muffins....

My assistant helped me, of course....except sometimes my assistant is messy :)

She did well with spooning the flour mix in....until she got bored. Ha. It's ok, she is still hired next time.

I decided to make the apple chunks bigger and that was NOT a hit for my husband and Abby. I like them...I guess you live and learn. 

The recipe was majorly modified due to lack of a couple ingredients and I don't like nuts in stuff. So here's how I did it. Here's the pin if you'd like to look at the original recipe. Next time I will add oats though cause I like them!

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 large eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil (I used olive oil)

3/4 cup applesauce
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup whole wheat flour

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon allspice (didn't have)
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup rolled oats

1 medium apple, finely chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  
Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners. 
In a large bowl, mix together the sugars, eggs, oil, vanilla and applesauce. In a separate bowl, mix together the flours, baking powder, soda, salt and spices.  
Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients in the bowl.  
Stir in the oats, and apples.  
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

I've got so many more recipes coming...I just love cooking and baking. Can't wait to share more soon!
