Between you and me, I actually forgot to put the apples in, but they were still delicious. I’m sure they’d be even better with the apples. 🙂

  1. Hey! I saw your blog on the message boards and came to see its amazing! Those muffins look so amazing but I am allergic to apple 🙁 I decided to follow your blog because I love it I will definitely come back.

    1. Hey Sabrina! Thanks for stopping by! As I said, I ended up forgetting the apple, and they still turned out fantastic, so you definitely don't have to keep the apple in the recipe. 🙂
