I had a whole bowl of apples on the kitchen counter that seemed to look a little sluggish. The first thing I thought of making was these delicious Caramel Apple Crumbles. I decided to not go that route since it contains all the sugar and butter in Gauteng.
Instead, I made these amazing Apple Cinnamon Crumble Muffins. Still sneaky, but with much less sugar and butter! (Go tell yourself that…)
They are ridiculously easy and came out super fluffy and just plain delicious. I even got the fussy eater to eat half of one muffin and that, people, is huge.
It didn’t stop me though, and I soon managed to have two of these without even a flinch.
It is the perfect pick-me-up snack for the kids after school and a great addition to a tea party you might find yourself invited to… No matter the occasion though, you should seriously keep this one on file.
If you are a muffin fan, and look, I am the biggest muffin whore EVER – you will absolutely love this recipe. How could you not dive straight in after baking time? My muffins barely had time to cool down before I chomped down. Make sure this is on your baking-to-do-list this weekend! Cheers!
