one of my favorite things to do is search for new food blogs
with great recipes, great pictures, and good feedback.
i really love trying new recipes. sometimes they fail, but i like the challenge.
to kick off fall, i made apple muffins.
yes, with real chunks of apple
& even applesauce (instead of oil)
these were delicious.
very moist with a crunchy topping.
the key to a great muffin is not over-mixing the batter.
literally, only mix until the ingredients are barely combined.
also, you can substitute applesauce for oil.
if you're nervous, try 1/2 oil 1/2 applesauce
but really, 100% applesauce makes the muffin more hearty and natural.
