Whole Wheat Apple & Orange Muffins
I believe the world to be a muffin pan, and there certainly are a lot of muffins here.
Cute that was isn't it? And indeed there are a lot of muffins any which ways you take, the literal way or otherwise. I love just throwing various ingredients in a bowl and coming up with different combinations for muffins, to eat them for breakfast or to take them for travel or to eat with your evening tea.
Sometime ago, O announced that he is having friends over for a play date and he wants me to bake some muffins and the friends would be home in 30 mins, yes he is just 6 yrs in case you are wondering. sigh they grow up way too fast. Anyways I looked around in my pantry to see what did I have at home, two apples, one orange and some orange juice. The decision was made it will be Apple and Orange muffins.
The kids came, ate infact gobbled them all up and I was a happy mom, another reason I love muffins so much. Quick to make but yet so yummy.
