Cooking Tips:

  • If the apples are not soft enough after 30 minutes, bake for an additional 10 minutes.
  • Want to add different spices? Try adding in some apple spice instead of just plain cinnamon to get that apple pie flavor!
  • These muffins are naturally sweetened with apples and bananas, so they are definitely not nearly as sweet as traditional muffins. If you like them to be sweeter, feel free to add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of sugar or honey to the batter. apple cups in muffin tin
