Apple-Walnut Muffin Mix

Keep this mix on hand for small-batch baking. Each muffin comes out with a nice, rounded top, crunchy sugar topping, and hints of cinnamon, walnuts and apples. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

    I also liked that these were eggless, since I'm allergic to eggs. The texture was great, and they rose well. I made them with dried cherries and nuts as the other reviewer suggested. They were good but seemed like they needed a little more flavor. I may add some vanilla extract next time.

    I have made these three times! This recipe is great --the best thing is no eggs (my daughter is allergic)! I baked the whole dozen at the same time and used dried cherries and almonds. The second batch had no nuts or dried fruit but 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips! All were delicious, very moist and not crumbly like other non-egg baked goods I have tried.
