Vanilla Glazed Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Apple cinnamon muffins topped with a warm vanilla glaze.

Oh my December. This calls for a muffin or three!

Muffins are so lovable that if I make them on Saturday, which I obviously do, always, I will end up eating at least three. It’s guaranteed. I am sucker for those little muffies. Especially if they aren’t actually little.

And besides loving muffins, I so so so love baking with apples.

Apples plus muffins? Yes, friends. I’m gettin’ wild.

The obsession continues today because I’m giving you a recipe for apple cinnamon muffins that is perfectly sized for just you. And your special someone.

This is a cute little recipe for just 3-4 muffins! Yay for easy, small batch baking!

Yay for eating the whole small batch while Bjork is working out!

Um, I mean, you know…

Besides loving all things apple and muffin, I am also loving this band!

They’re called Boyce Avenue and they allow me to love pop music in a new way. And I love pop music in all ways.

Are you going to buy their CD as a Christmas gift to yourself? Good idea.
