Glazed Cinnamon Apple Muffins Recipe

Apple, pecans and coconut give these cinnamon-spiced muffins a hearty texture. They're tender and delicious baked in paper liners or greased muffin cups. —Carol Stine, Dayton, Ohio

"Excellent! Very moist! I used 1 cup whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup white. I also cut the drizzle in half and it was more than enough! I also used walnuts because that's what I had and I didn't toast them. I omitted coconut. Absolutely delicious! I already wrote the recipe down for future baking!:) Thank!"
