GUYS, do I have a recipe for you! Sometimes you take chances on new recipes and they come out lifeless and taste like a good slab of nothing. But not this time. I’m telling you, these are the best muffins I have ever tasted. I’m not trying to toot my own horn here, but if you make these Apple Cinnamon and Walnut muffins, you will not regret it.
The main story behind this recipe was my mom wanted to make oat muffins for weeks and weeks but never had the time to do it. She wanted to make a recipe she had found in a magazine, some Apple and Toasted Oat Muffins, but the recipe used some ingredients we didn’t have, so I decided to adapt the recipe. Plus, I had some cinnamon baking chips I had bought for Christmas cookies that I never used so I wanted to get rid of them. Two birds with one stone!
Feel free to adapt the recipe to your liking, but the moist goodness of apples and cinnamon in this recipe might be too good to pass up.
