Apple Oatmeal Muffins

I love baking with apples!  And I must say, this is one of the tastiest muffin recipes I’ve tried in quite awhile.  The combination of apples, oats and spices is just perfect, although I find an extra dash of cinnamon never hurts!  As an added bonus, the whole house smells lovely while they bake.

I used a combination of all-purpose and whole wheat flour, but you could certainly use all white or all wheat, depending on your tastes and what you have on hand.  If you prefer, you can bake this up in a 9×5-inch loaf pan–just be sure to increase the cooking time.  These muffins are a perfect Fall treat.  They were certainly a big hit at my house!
