When the leaves start to change colors, you know it’s time for all the apple cider kinds of foods. These stuffed apple cider muffins are everything you have ever imagined. They are stuffed with apples, contain delicious apple cider, and are only 3 SmartPoints per muffin.
I absolutely love apples and any recipe that has apples in it, which is why this stuffed apple cider muffin recipe is SO good.
I mean, look at these apples stuffed into these muffins. Holy moly – they are SO good.
What I love about these muffins is how many apples they have in them – and the apple cider really gives them a moist, delicious taste.
Did you know that these muffins don’t use any butter? You wouldn’t know that if you tasted them….they are that good! These are great muffins to eat for breakfast (or at any time of day).
