Apple Harvest Muffins

Apple Harvest Muffins

I love the aroma of crisp apples baking in the oven. They fill the kitchen with the scent of fall.

And if you want to get into the fall spirit — or you’re just missing the season — these healthy apple muffins will bring you there!

You can bake these light and airy apple muffins at any time of the year, but they’re really the best in fall, when apple season is at its peak.

Not sure of what type of apples to use? Here’s a handy guide to the most common apple varieties.
