This is a basic fruit muffin recipe. I use chopped apples, but 1 cup of any type fruit may be added to make a quick and easy batch of fruit muffins.

I made it with half whole wheat flour, half brown sugar, and added some ground cinnamon and cloves, and they were really tasty! I also left the skins on the apples.

Pretty good basic recipe. I needed a muffin recipe that didn't use eggs so I was glad to find this one. I did add some vanilla and I used mandarin oranges for the fruit (that's what I had on hand). I just used an individual one-cup size of the oranges. I drained the juice into measuring cup and then added milk to make the 1 cup of liquid. My husband really liked his vanilla muffin (he got the one the last one scraped from the bowl and didn't get any mandarin oranges). I definitely liked the added vanilla with the mandarin oranges but probably would add cinnamon instead if I made apple muffins.

This is a good base recipe. Made as is, it is pretty bland. Just add some spices and more fruit (and maybe sugar) and then it's yummy.
