For some reason, it’s perfectly fine if I have the same breakfast of cereal and orange juice every Monday through Friday for years, but I can’t stand to see my husband suffer from breakfast boredom. So, after he had been eating these Savory Breakfast Muffins for weeks, I wanted to change it up and introduce something sweet, simple and full of juicy, plump fruit.
Over the weekend, I mixed up a batch of these scrumptious apple cinnamon muffins, and as they baked the cinnamon aroma filled our apartment and made me SO eager for my first bite!
Fortunately for my waistline, Mark took the rest of the muffins to the office, but after a few “test bites” each, we were in total apple-cinnamon heaven. Big chunks of fresh apple rested inside the muffin, surrounded by warm, fluffy cinnamon-sugar dough and topped with a crumbly butter-sugar mixture.
These muffins were even so good that he didn’t mind the frilly pink cupcake liners!
I love to try delicious, homemade breakfasts for my guy to take the office instead of shake-and-pour oatmeal, and it looks like we found a winner in these muffins! They give him the warm, filling morning meal and apple-cinnamon flavor he loves, and they’re super simple for me to make the weekend before.
