Big Ol' Apple Muffins

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by chiclet

Last semester, I brought one of these muffins to school with me every day. On the last day of classes, a fellow student approached me after class and asked where I got them because "they look so good!" When I told her I bake them myself, she looked somewhat dejected and simply replied "Oh. Oh well." I felt bad that I couldn't share the recipe with her right then, so I'm making up for it by sharing with you. BTW, they freeze really well.

I tried these this morning and they were great. Very moist on the inside. I was able to make 12 small muffins since I don't own a large muffin tin.

They taste and smell almost like Apple and Cinnamon Oatmeal. I modified the recipe a little and use Fiji Apples because that is what I had on hand. My muffins did have a slight after taste but I think this is due to the brand of Apple Butter I used and not the recipes fault.

I will be making these again.
