Apple cinnamon muffins sound like fall to me. It seems like summer just started, but that's not reality. A lot of kids go back to school this week, and fall is creeping up. Part of me looks forward to all the apple and pumpkin treats that come along with fall. Hot chocolate, hoodies, boots, and fires in the fireplace – okay, I am totally ready.

Yum. If you like apples and cinnamon, give these muffins a try. They are great to make for company, or just for a snack for your household. I know my grandparents have a tree that produces hundreds of apples all at once. We are always looking for recipes to use up all the apples before they go bad. This muffin recipe will be high on that list.
