Brown sugar apple cinnamon muffins

April 28, 2019

It was a muffin baking kinda day.. I was after something sweet and also craving an apple baked treat..as much as I love chocolate my favorite dessert usually ends up being something with apple in it πŸ™‚ These brown sugar apple cinnamon muffins are delicious and just 2 smart points each on WW freestyle. I love when I can bake up a tasty muffin for just 2 points, even if I want two I know I can easily work them into my day without going off track, win win πŸ™‚

    What can you use if you don’t like almond milk?

      You can use any milk it just might later the points, but overall per muffin it shouldn’t

    When entered the nutrition info to my tracker for individual muffins it said these were four points, with the recipe builder it’s two. Do you know why it would be different?

      If you are using my nutritional numbers then as stated right after I list them it includes all ingredients (apples & eggs which are zero foods) so those numbers will give you a higher read in your calculator, when you build a recipe in the app it gives you the freestyle value taking into consideration those zero point foods

    Thanks so much… Next time, I will follow in all details, ’cause I used paper cups…with the result that half of each muffin stays in there. But there are good !!

    Is one muffin considered a serving….so 2 freestyle points would be for 1 muffin?

    Hi what kind of apple should be used for this recipe? I only have Gala in my house; that is the only kind we like to eat. Thanks!

      They will be good a few days in the fridge then I’d freeze them, due to ingredients used they don’t have a long “shelf life” so to speak πŸ˜‰
