Spiced Apple Yogurt Muffins

apple muffins
Muffins so tender, so filled with spicy apple flavor, that you'll be tempted to eat them for dessert. So go ahead! Make plenty so you have some for breakfast and dessert. And lunchboxes and after-school snacks and coffee breaks...

For best results, choose a tart apple like Granny Smith. You can use nonfat or full-fat yogurt with equally good results. These freeze well.
