These easy muffins use just one apple.
I keep chopped pecans in the freezer.
So I can make these homemade muffins
in under 30 minutes.
I love the cinnamon pecan crunch on top.

They smell amazing.

then whisk together the dry ingredients
and then use the same whisk and whisk
together the wet ingredients.

mix he other ingredients.
Three bowls ready to go. Add the
chopped apple to the wet ingredients.
Just add the wet ingredients
to the flour mixture
and stir until just moistened.
Do not overmix.
Spoon into greased muffin tin.
I get 12 muffins, sometimes only 10.
Sprinkle on the topping mixture and bake
in preheated 375º oven for 15 minutes.
Check the center with a toothpick,
if it comes out clean they are done. Remove
