Apple Oatmeal Muffins Recipe for Fall

This time of year always seems to go hand in hand with apples. We love going apple picking and often collect way more apples than we can possibly eat. I freeze quite  a bit for recipes, make apple sauce, add them to smoothies and of course we eat them on their own. Apples are a great food you can eat anywhere anytime. They are full of vitamins and help you get through the day. I love that they are one of the only colourful foods I can get my kids to eat. So we always have them in the house.

If you are like me and have a few extra apples around, you will want to try this recipe. It is yummy and the kids will love them. These are great for snacking on the go and school lunches.
