Moist Apple Streusel Muffins |

I couldn’t resist topping my apple muffins with a Cinnamon Streusel and if you try this recipe you will know exactly why!  The cinnamon streusel sends this muffin into overtime yummy!  I don’t know about you but I like my muffins moist, I can’t stand a dry muffin.  And it also needs to have some sweetness but not too sweet like a cupcake but just that right hint of sweetness!  This recipe almost knocked me over with flavor because I did get that touch of sweet but I also tasted the lovely tang of the granny smith apples!  OK let me stop here and let you try em’ ~ you won’t regret it!  Don’t forget to share the flavor love!

oh yeah baby

With a bag fill of apples, and not the desire to eat them I desided muffins were the way to go!
So I made them. I am a big fan of licking the bowl (a kind of indicator to what’s coming) and for once it wasn’t nice. But I wouldn’t be put off. And thank goodness I wasn’t. As soon as they were out they were SO yummy I two and trying not to go back for more!
What an amazing recipe!!! Out right delicious x
