Cinnamon Apple Muffins

Apple Cinnamon Muffin

Treat your friends and family members to these healthy muffins. Substitute the apples for pears or even persimmons. Adjust the sugar according to the sweetness of the fruits. You can store the cake up to 2 days in the fridge and about a month in the freezer. Cinnamon is the ideal partner for apples; however you can also replace it with 1 teaspoon of ground cardamoms or 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
