Apple-Spice High-Rise Muffins

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Rachchow

These are big moist muffins, filled with loads of fruit and spice. I always put a little extra spices than the recipe calls for. They are whole-wheat, low-fat, and sooo yummy!

These are very good and were a hit with my family. I used paper muffin liners and sprayed the liners with nonstick spray, and the muffins did not stick to the liners at all. I used two large apples and that was plenty. The batter was thick which made it easy to deposit in the muffin cups with an ice cream scoop. Great recipe, low guilt, THANKS Rachow!
