It’s time to embrace our other Fall Farmer’s Market Favorite, Apples! Before turning to Thanksgiving pie testing, I wanted to try some Apple Muffins. I came across a version of this recipe on Little Spice Jar (thanks ongoing LSJ!) last night and as eager as I was to try it immediately, it was worth waiting until today to pick up fresh ingredients at Union Square (the Farmer’s Market there is on Monday, Weds, Friday and Saturday).
This recipe is really easy, guilt-less and so so delicious.
