Apple and Fig Muffins


I like freshly baked muffins and I do enjoy them from time to time, warm  with a dollop of butter…Yummy!

This muffins are loaded with delicious pieces of figs and apples in every bite. The heavier texture and hint of cinnamon makes this muffins perfect for winter baking.   Enjoy them for breakfast or any time you want a midday snack.  Fast, easy and a delicious treat for you and your family.

Enjoy!
