Oh So Good! Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Apple Cinnamon Muffin Recipe Frugal Money Saving Kid Friendly Food
I adore easy food, after all, I am the queen of #Bishbashbosh! Today I’m sharing with you my Oh So Good recipe for yummy muffins with a crumble topping … Cos, who doesn’t love a bit of crumble? 

I’m the first to admit, I’m the ultimate lazy chef…. but sometimes, you’re forced to feed the brood! (I know right)

I have all good intentions, but never get around to them, but every now & then I get the urge to whip up a treat for the kids, ……Apple Crumble is one of my favorite all time desserts & so are muffins….
It made sense to put the two together, since my kids usually argue over portions of ANYTHING! I decided to make muffins… individual hand held desserts = no arguing – Score!!
I’m just going to get straight into it, and give you what you’ve came for!
