Family Thoughts

If you are looking for fluffy, sinful muffins, this is not the recipe for you. However, these muffins tasted amazing with a slight hint of apple and a dense texture.

Because they are healthier muffins, you won't get that fluffy consistency as much.
The kids and I ate these muffins up in no time! They freeze well for lunches too.
