Invisible Apple Muffins

Some kids don’t like “chunks.” These muffins are silky smooth and moist and still contain apples, just not in chunk form.

The sandy texture of the cinnamon/sugar on top may not go over well with toddlers. If that’s the case in your home, omit this delicious touch, and they’ll devour the invisible apples.

You can cut a dip in the “core” of the muffin and fill with jam. Serve with sliced apples or fruit on the side for even more servings of fruit.
