Spiced Apple Muffins

I try to send something home baked in Evan’s lunchbox if I can. He would be quite happy with an endless supply of chocolate chip zucchini muffins but I like to change it up every once in a while. I bought a big bag of apples last week, so I thought I might as well find a recipe that would use one or two of them. Evan quite likes these muffins & I like that they use whole wheat flour and aren’t too terribly sweet. Definitely a winner.
