Happy Monday! It has been a while since I last shared my first Pinterest Recipe
post with you. So I figured there is no time like the present to share with you what I have been cooking in the kitchen this fall. Since my apple picking adventure
in September I have been browsing Pinterest for some great recipes that will use up the apples as well as other fall favorite recipes. Here are the recipes that I have tried out from Pinterest, deemed successes, and have already made their way into my recipe box! Enjoy!
Apple Cinnamon Muffins with Almond and Brown Sugar Topping
recipe from ShopGirl
- 3 small apples (or 2 large ones)
- 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 2/3 cup plus 4 tsp packed light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/4 plain yogurt
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 sliced almonds
1. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and 1 tsp ground cinnamon. Mix until all ingredients are combined.
2. Next, prepare your apples. Peel, core and dice them into small chunks (about 1/4 inch chunks). Set them aside and preheat your oven to 400F.
3. In a smaller bowl, combine the brown sugar, vegetable oil, honey, yogurt and the two eggs. Whisk until you have a brown-ish mixture, then fold it into the flour mixture and add the apples.
4. Now prepare your muffin topping in a small bowl. Mix 1/4 cup sliced almonds, 4 tsp brown sugar and 1 tsp ground cinnamon.
5. Line your muffin pan with paper cups, pour batter into each cup equally and then sprinkle with the topping. Bake for 20 minutes, until the tops of the muffins are golden brown!
- 3 to 4 apples
- 3/4 cup raisins
- 2 to 3 Tbsp light mayo (enough to cover all apples)
1. Prepare your apples by removing the core and cutting them into small, bite-sized pieces (about 3/4-1 inch chunks).
2. In a large bowl, combine the apples, raisins and mayo and fold together with a spatula until combined.
3. Grab a fork and enjoy!

1. Mix together all ingredients in a bowl.
2. Spoon mixture into a mini muffin pan.
3. Bake at 350F for 7-10 minutes (depending on the size of the muffins) until a toothpick comes out clean.

**This recipe said it makes 4-6 servings but just to be forewarned they are very generous servings!
The reason for all the crockpot recipes is that I have recently stumbled upon how easy it is to fix a delicious meal using them. Now I don't have to wait after I get home from the gym, the meal is ready to go! (It only took 3 years before I discovered how amazing this kitchen appliance is!)
