Apple Wheat Muffins (Egg Free)

Throughout the hottest days of summer, I always look forward to fall. It is my most favorite season of all the seasons. After the long, hot and sometimes tiring days of summer, the cool, crisp air of fall feels invigorating:) Well, fall has finally made its presence felt in our neck of the woods. The leaves are turning color, the air is crisp and cool, and the days are already beginning to feel much shorter. I am looking forward to taking some really long walks so that I can enjoy this cool air before the weather begins to get really cold :)

One other thing I really look forward to in fall season is baking :) Yes, I bake occasionally in summer, but with high temperatures I am not tempted to bake too often. Baking in fall is definitely way more fun than in summer :)

This year I haven't baked as much, but I made a start on my fall baking with these apple wheat muffins. These egg free, butter free muffins are something I whipped up on a whim in order to use up some of the apples in my fruit basket :)  And I am glad I did, these turned out so well. The muffins were soft, moist and delicious. Everyone in my family definitely loved them :)  If you are in the mood to bake, why not give these easy muffins a try and as usual, let me know what you think about it :)
