Apple and Almond Muffins


Almond goes wonderfully with apple and is a lovely alternative to the classic apple and cinnamon combo. The muffins have a nice crunchy top and a light fluffy centre. Just how a good muffin should be in my opinion! This is a really easy recipe, quick to prepare and only takes 20mins to bake so you can whip up some delicious muffins in no time! Perfect for novice bakers and even kids!
