It has been a while since we've shared a family favorite with you on the blog, but this recipe should make up for that. These "little people apple muffins" have been my favorite since I was in pre-school. Yes, that is a long time ago, and I still love these muffins. These tiny, delicious muffins were the perfect size for my little person hands as a 4 year old, and they still satisfy years later now that I am a big person.
I did adapt this recipe a little bit, cutting the oil slightly, switching oat flour for some of the regular flour, and using apple cider instead of apple juice. You are going to love these! They taste like fall. Go pick some apples and make these muffins this weekend!
