Apple Muffin Recipe

It’s Indiana Apple Orchard and Pumpkin Patch time again. As much as I don’t want to admit it: Autumn is here. What better way to celebrate than with these golden delicious Apple Streusel Muffins?

Indiana Apples? The Solution!

Did you over-pick apples again? These muffins are fantastic–and the new favorite of Kid #1!

While relatively easy to throw together, the most time consuming portion is shredding the apples, so don’t approach this recipe unless you have a kitchen helper or a handy-dandy gadget to speed up the process. These smell so good! I”m sure they’ll be a fave in your house, too.
