Do you know the Muffin Man?

Yes, I do know the muffin man and he LOVES this recipe I'm about to share with you. I found this recipe from the Foodland Ontario website. It was simple to make and it's a great breakfast treat. I made it last night and it received great reviews from some tough critics and was a hit in the office. If you have the facilities at your school I highly recommend this one!

*Note: After making these muffins I think applesauce in the place of the eggs would be amazing. I've included the recipe with this substitution. If you wish to use the original please click the link above or below.

Happy cooking (and eating!)

Fold apples into mixture until evenly distributed. Spoon into prepared muffin cups. Sprinkle with spice crumb. Bake in 375 F (190 C) oven until deep golden brown and toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean, 16 - 20 minutes.
