Apple Cinnamon Muffins

We have a lot of apples so I made these:

Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Apple Cinnamon Muffins

2 cups of all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 Tbsp cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

10 Tbsp unsalted butter (1 1/4 stick), softened
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cup plain yogurt or buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/2 cup chopped apples

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar together, beating until fluffy. Add eggs. Add the vanilla

Make a well in the dry ingredients. Pour the egg mixture. Do not over beat. YOU WANT LUMPS! Fold in the apples.

Use a standard 12-muffin muffin pan. Line with the muffin papers. Distribute the muffin dough equally among the cups. Bake until muffins are golden brown, about 25 to 30 minutes. Test with a long toothpick to make sure the center of the muffins are done. Set on wire rack to cool for 5 minutes. Remove muffins from the tin and serve slightly warm.
