Apple Blueberry Cinnamon Muffins

Sunday, April 8, 2018
These Apple Blueberry Cinnamon Muffins are the perfect breakfast muffins!

The muffin tastes similar to an apple cake, homemade from scratch.

The delicious combination of flavors is perfect together and then with a hint of cinnamon add that comforting touch!

The cake-like muffins can also be used for a dessert.

Add a dollop of whipped cream on top and you have a whole new use, besides a breakfast or brunch muffin.

Perfect addition with that first cup of coffee or afternoon tea!

I love apples in just about everything and they hold together so well, they are perfect for traveling.

The smell as they are baking will certainly have your mouth watering for one.

The whole kitchen smells wonderful! I just love quick bread with fruits and this is easy to make and my go-to recipe.

It's the best recipe for muffins and so versatile.

Add whatever fruits you like. This basic recipe is sure to please everyone that tries them.

Making Muffins are so easy!

There are so many possibilities when it comes to flavoring muffins. This is a baked muffin with a crispy outside and soft moist inside.

I really like the combination of the tartness in the apples and then bringing it together with the sweetness of the blueberries.

The two fruits together really do compliment each other. Serve them heated up or grilled with butter in the morning,  grilling them just brings them even to a new level of deliciousness.
