Day 252: Sugar Free Apple Muffins

I had great reviews about my sugar free blueberry muffins, so I thought I would make another version of a sugar free muffin.

As I brainstormed different muffin flavors and looked through my fridge, I saw that I had some apples on hand! I decided to make apple muffins. Which are perfect for fall!

These apple muffins are sweetened by a bit of maple syrup, banana, and apples! I used Gala Apples, but you can use any type of apple you want . If you don't have maple syrup you can use honey instead.

The mixture will look pretty thick, but that's normal for muffins! You don't want to add anymore milk or else it will not have the right consistency.

These are absolutely delicious in all ways! The apples melt down and caramelize. It's really fantastic!
