I mean, banana muffins with chocolate chips are good and all but have you tried APPLES?

I know, it seems like kind of a strange thing to have two very different fruits in a muffin but just trust me on this okay?

If you were a fan of the applesauce muffins or my paleo banana nut muffins then you are going to love this little mash-up!

Why are my Muffins flat?

The secret to domed muffins is starting to bake them at 400 degrees Fahrenheit, then reducing the heat a bit to finish the bake time. Don’t skip this step! Also, you will want to make sure you don’t overmix the batter, as it would bring too much air into it, causing the muffins to fall flat.

Can I use Gluten Free Flour?

Absolutely! Just make sure that you use a 1:1 gluten free flour so that the measurements are the same! If you enjoy treats that are gluten free come see our gluten free cupcakes.

What Kind of Apples Should I use?

This recipe would probably turn out great with any kind of apples. I used Fuji apples and they turned out fantastic!
