Cream Cheese and Green Apple Muffins

You’ll love this soft, semi-sweet cream cheese and green apple muffin. Who doesn’t love a muffin that’s not overly sweet from time to time? And homemade…a win-win situation.

This sweet tooth of mine has really been kicking in since I’ve gotten older. It is very tempting to run to the store and get a store-bought muffin, but I noticed that all of the muffins, at least the ones I like anyway, have tons of sugar.

They were not only full of sugar, but also had a good sprinkle of sugar sitting on top of them. Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy the store-bought, sugary muffins sometimes, but I try not to overindulge.

The blend of the fresh apples and cream cheese creates a super moist muffin. The granny smith apples also add a great natural sweetness.

I like to keep my muffins in a zip lock bag or Tupperware container to ensure that the moisture stays locked into the muffins.

They are even better a day old. Some foods are just better the next day after the seasonings have really set in.

These muffins are great for breakfast with a smear of butter and also great as an after dinner dessert/snack. My favorite addition to these muffins is some extra cream cheese.

It just a little something special about the muffins. When you are ready to eat them, enjoy them either at room temperature or heat them in the microwave for a few seconds.

This muffin recipe makes about 30 muffins so it would only be right to share with a friend or two.

    Your ingredients say 3 tspn baking powder and 1 tspn baking soda. salt is not on the ingredients list. The baking soda is not mentioned in the directions, though salt is. Can you clarify? Is the baking soda a typo, and it should reall say 1tspn of salt?
