    Made these muffins over the weekend and they turned out fabulous! I altered the recipe slightly by using all purpose flour for everything instead of whole wheat. I also used Macintosh apples because they were what I had on hand. The muffins are very fluffy and super tasty! Loving the fall fresh baking!
