These muffins are delicious for breakfast or with a cup of coffee for an afternoon snack. They also make great after school snacks for the kids with a glass of milk. These are really easy to make. You do need to prepare the apples the night before. Here is what you need for these:
4 cups apples, peeled and diced
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine apples and sugar and let stand overnight in the refrigerator. Beat eggs, oil and vanilla together. Add to apples and sugar.
Combine all of the dry ingredients. Mix in the walnuts. Mix with the wet ingredients just until all is moistened and combined.
Fill paper lined muffin tins about 3/4 full. Bake for about 25 minutes. Makes 24 smaller muffins or 18 large ones.
