Apple Muffins

This recipe is almost identical to the carrot muffin recipe I posted a while back. I had some apples I needed to use up so I though I'd try substituting apple for the carrots and decreasing the amount of sugar.  I'm happy to say I love these muffins just as much as the carrot muffins. Sometimes I find apple muffin recipes can be dry, but these muffins are not! They are wonderfully moist and delicious!

What you'll need
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
2/3 cup oil
1/2 cup crushed pineapple, drained
1 cup grated apple
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon

How to
1.  Preheat oven to 350°F.

2.  In a mixing bowl, beat together the eggs and sugar. Add the oil and vanilla and mix until combined. With a spatula, stir in the pineapple and apple.

3.  In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Stir into wet mixture, just until combined.

4.  Fill greased or lined muffin tins 3/4 full and bake for 22-23 minutes. Makes 12 muffins.
