Apple Mini Muffins

Apple Mini Muffins

Apples – 1 of your 5 a day! 

Apples are one of our favorite fruits.  I like to create both sweet and savory snack with them. From apple crumble, pancakes to muffins, cookies and savory pinwheels with apples and Indian spices. Adding cinnamon gives it a delicious warm flavor, perfect for a snack on the go for the whole family. 

 

Here is a quick recipe for our favorite apple and carrot muffin bites:
