"Great flavor and very moist. My only mistake was that I finely chopped the apple instead of grating. Tasted great, but didn't look all that pretty. That's what I get for not following instructions. I would make again, but next time grate the apple."

"This is the second type of apple muffin I made this year and so far this one is the best. I used 1/2 white and 1/2 wheat flour."
