Friday is among us, today I woke up craving fluffy apple cinnamon muffins. I whipped up these light and healthy gluten free cinnamon apple muffins that are SO yummy. Each bite is completely guilt-free with minimal added sugar. These are so easy to make and are a delicious breakfast idea for a crisp Fall morning.
Top it off with a little grass fed butter or your favorite nut butter and ENJOY.
