Apple Wheat Muffins & a Giveaway

Happy {early} Thanksgiving! Because my posts have been very few and far between, I wanted to make sure I posted a recipe before Thanksgiving.   I didn’t have time to bake you a traditional apple pie, but I did whip up a batch of one of my favorite apple muffins.  You can easily include these in your Thanksgiving festivities, as either a side or a dessert, or even better as a breakfast/brunch item. 

These muffins are made with chunks of fresh apples.  I like to use Napa or Gala apples because they’re not too sweet.  However, feel free to use anything you have on hand.  The apples become soft and almost create this gooey texture that actually resembles an apple pie.  The cinnamon definitely helps with brining home that apple pie flavor as well. 

Enjoy your Thanksgiving!  And enjoy these Apple Wheat Muffins!

Now for the giveaway!  Earlier this year I entered a contest to bake something using Cinnabon's 2 new products - Sprinkle Cinnamon Roll Topping and Cinnamon Roll Syrup.  I made these delicious Cinnamon Roll Scones and WON!  And because I won, one of my readers wins as well!  One lucky reader will win a years supply of Sprinkle Cinnamon Roll Topping and Cinnamon Roll Syrup!

To enter, all you need to do is comment on this post and say what you would make with these product(s).  It doesn't need to be something extravagant.  Simple is often the way to go :)

For an additional entry, you can tweet about this giveaway.  Be sure to leave an addition comment stating you did.

The giveaway runs through Sunday, November 25th at 11:59pm PST.  The winner will be picked by a random generator, and will be announced the following week.

*Now that baby Ezekiel is almost 7 weeks old {I know! Time seriously does fly}, I’m finally starting to settle into cooking and baking regularly again.  I’m not in the kitchen quite as much as I was before – I mean I did bake something pretty much every day – but I’m trying to whip something sweet up once a week.  Sooo I should be posting more frequently!  Thanks for being so patient with me.  Being a mom is not easy, but man is it worth it!

And because I have to show off my little baby...
