Apple Oats Muffins

    I couldn’t believe how much sugary candy was given out on Halloween this week.  It really made me start thinking about being more careful about all the junk that the kids consume now that the holidays are right around the corner.  If I know my family, they will be bringing a lot of snacks and desserts for my sons and nephews when they come over to celebrate.  I’d rather they enjoy some more nutritious and wholesome treats.

    Although I love baking, I don’t like to spend a lot of time in the kitchen so I try to plan for recipes that will allow me to freeze and defrost them later so we could still enjoy them.  One of my favorite recipes to make around this time of the year is for Apple Oat Muffins.  Not only do my guys love them, but they also taste great and are perfect for enjoying for breakfast or lunch.  My boys even like to eat them as an after-school snack when they get home in the afternoon!
