These Thermomix Apple and Cinnamon Muffins will quickly become your new favourite snack!
Both my boys and my husband love to enjoy homemade muffins as a snack and these Thermomix Apple and Cinnamon Muffins are one of their favourites. These muffins are similar to my
Thermomix Apple and Cinnamon Loaf recipe but they last a whole lot longer than the loaf thanks to being individually portioned!!
You can use ANY variety of apples when making this recipe and while I prefer to leave the apple peel on, you can certainly peel your apple first if you prefer. If your kids are like mine and like to eat just half an apple (and then leave it lying around the house, but let's not talk about that!) this recipe is a perfect way to use those half eaten apples, or even pieces of sliced apple that are leftover from snacks or their lunch boxes - can you tell I don't like waste?!
These muffins can also be made ahead and popped into the freezer. I usually just take them straight out of the freezer and into the boys lunchboxes and they defrost in time for them to enjoy at morning tea.
