It’s the first official week of fall, and you can feel it in the air! The leaves are changing color, football is back on, and you’re gearing up for all the family time that comes with the holidays. One of the hardest parts of the holidays for me is figuring out exactly what to get for all my loved ones. At least it was until I found this recipe for some amazing Cinnamon Apple Muffins. This is an especially great gift because you can make them in bulk! Cinnamon and apple are two flavors that have always signified that cozy fall feeling and this cinnamon apple muffin will have you feeling like fall too!
