Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Wow. It is way harder than I expected to get back into the swing of things! Tuesday was my first day back at work at to say it was hard is putting it mildly. Thankfully, I have fantastically understanding co-workers!

Lady Behind the Curtain Dessert ChallengeSo, please bear with me as I try to get back into the groove of blogging! There's no better way to get back into it than with a fun blog challenge--The Lady Behind the Curtain's Dessert Challenge!
Melissa's Cuisine: Apple Cinnamon Muffins
Even though the temperature still feels like summer, fall flavors are making their appearance. Apples and cinnamon were this month's challenge ingredients.

Admittedly, muffins aren't typically a dessert, but they are sweet and these days I will take whatever I can get my hands on!  I personally think you can eat a muffin anytime of the day!  Plus, in the interest of full disclosure, I actually made these muffins this spring and I have been holding the post until apple season. Now that it's in full swing, this recipe is being posted at the perfect time!
