Apple Cinnamon Muffins


Asher and I made these Apple Cinnamon Muffins for his snacks and school this week (and Mommy's too).

I was so proud of Asher for wanting to help cut up the apples, he was so good at it too! The apples were cut into perfect little chunks and it was pretty great for me cause in my opinion that's the worst part of making apple anything! The peeling, the cutting.... blueberries are way easier!!

Then he also scooped the batter into the muffin tins after he lined each of the cups for me.  Once they were in the oven he offered to wash the bowl, and dry it as well as turn on the dishwasher for me!


I mean WHAT A MAN!

He tells me he wants to be a chef when he is like daddy (grown up).  We discussed that he would be able to go to school to learn all he needed to know to be a chef when he was older and that he could come home and teach mommy everything he learned each day... or that we could both go to school together!  That would be fun (for me)!

The muffins were ready just before he was ready for bed tonight so he tried one out for his bedtime snack and he approved!

Here is the recipe for our Apple Cinnamon Muffins

1/2 cup of coconut oil
3/4 cup organic cane sugar
