Whenever my mom bakes these muffins, there's only one thing I feel -- that every house should smell like this. The sweet aroma of apples mixed with the woody fragrance of cinnamon is simply heavenly. Also, the lovely golden colour, thanks to the brown sugar, is a sight to behold. Did you know apples also keep your heart healthy!

We always have these healthy muffins during winter, and it is one recipe that we also get the kids in the house to help with. The ingredients are few and the method very easy-peasy, and the whole family has a great time making batch after batch of these yummy muffins. I am sure you will like this recipe and share it with your family and friends.
