Apples + Cinnamon = a warm and heavenly combination on its own, add a brown sugar cinnamon topping…. YUM.  Apple cinnamon is another classic fall flavour that I get borderline obsessive with as soon as fall hits. With having an apple tree in my backyard, I like to do lots of baking with them so they don’t go to waste before they go bad in the fall.  Muffins, breads and pancakes – adding apples to your favourite baked goods will help add flavour and keep them moist.  Warm and sweet with lots of cinnamon in every bite.. Just warms the soul, and who doesn’t love that?!

These muffins are a bit different for me, as I did not add any protein powder (who am I?!), but you could very easily add some for added protein!!!  I would choose a plain protein powder, or a cinnamon flavored powder if adding any in to this recipe.
