Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Muffins are one of life's little treats. Most muffins you buy at the store or the donut/coffee shop are filled with way too many unhealthy ingredients and calories though. Now, I'm not saying that it's not okay to splurge on a muffin every once in awhile, but if you're going to have one, why not have it be one that's better for you! I created this version of an apple cinnamon muffin using ingredients that you don't have to feel guilty about and it's now my go-to recipe.

They're great with a yogurt for a quick and satisfying breakfast and they're even great for a snack for you or the kids. They're moist, full of flavor and they freeze great!

1/2 tsp baking soda
