Homemade Apple Muffins

Bake up these deliciously easy Homemade Apple Muffins to enjoy the fall flavors of cinnamon and apple. So tasty! Even tweens can make this homemade muffin recipe on their own.

These grated apple muffins would also taste great with chopped walnuts or pecans, but we have to avoid nuts due to allergies in my family. I think the texture would be fantastic!

Speaking of allergies, these muffins are dairy-free, so they’re safe to share with those you know avoiding dairy.
