There is nothing better than fresh-baked muffins with seasonal fruit. In the fall, you can go apple-picking for your favorite type of apple and use them in this healthy mini apple muffin recipe. We used gala apples. They compliment any recipe with their crisp bite and mellow sweetness.You can even get away with using less sugar because of the natural sweetness.

We also like to use granny smith apples for baking. Experiment with different types of apples until you find your favorite!
