Apple Cinnamon Almond Muffins

My favorite fall flavors come together for this delicious and satisfying Apple Cinnamon Almond Muffin recipe!

The great thing about muffins are that they are already portion controlled and provide a great option for on-the-go breakfast or midday snack. 

These muffins are super easy to make. You can use your favorite type of apple, but I used Gala which are crunchy and sweet!
