This month we have been celebrating American Classics. Apple pie is definitely one of my favorite “American Classics,” so why not try it in muffin form. I found this amazing recipe and just had to try it. Not only were they one of the most delicious muffins I have tasted, but they made the entire house smell like a combination of cinnamon and apples with a hint of coconut. By the time they were done baking I had my boyfriend’s 4 friends crowding around me just waiting to get a bite. Trust me, the smell of these muffins will bring everyone in the house running to the kitchen!
