Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Hmmmmm. . .mufffffinnns.  Really, next to pie, is there anything better than a muffin?  I mean, pie is the ultimate food form.  No doubt about that.  But a muffin?  Please.  Yes, please.

Make that Shit:
1 3/4 cup flour
2 t baking powder
1/4 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 T cinnamon
1/3 cup shortening or butter
2/3 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups finely diced apples
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

Make sure you dice those apple bits nicely to ensure even and thorough cooking.  Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl, adding flour and apples LAST.  Divide evenly into muffin cups.  Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.  Makes 15 muffins.

If you have ever made a boxed apple muffin mix you know that the biggest problem are those little dehydrated apple bits that are few and far between.  Not here, my friend.  Tons of apples.  Sweet slivers of apple joy in every bite followed by that wonderful cinnamon smell and taste.  Couple this with a cup of coffee and you have a "I found my happy place" breakfast.  Also - 5 Weight Watchers points per muffin.  Word.

    1. Sorry. If it makes you feel any better I still suck at making eggs at my own house. Vile.
