I love baking with apples! And I must say, these Apple Oatmeal Muffins are some of the tastiest muffins 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.
