With the start of autumn right around the corner, it’s a great time to share this recipe for cinnamon apple muffins. These moist, delicious, muffins are the perfect combination of apples and cinnamon and the brown sugar topping gives it a nice sweetness. The best part, besides eating it, is the warm, cozy scent of autumn that will fill your kitchen while they’re baking.
