Square One Apple Cinnamon Muffins

These muffins were created by accident! I found a recipe online that looked fantastic, then I became distracted and couldn't find it again. So I decided to use my own intuition and create with love in the kitchen the way one should, as it turns out, they were a winner!

Know your nutrients

Cinnamon is one of those wonderful superfoods that is so subtle and lovely, and often people are unaware of the benefits they are adding to their food through it. Cinnamon is used to help treat muscle spasms, vomiting, diarrhea, infections, the common cold, loss of appetite, and erectile dysfunction.  Cinnamon is also beneficial to those who suffer from high blood pressure.   It can help fight against bacterial and fungal infections and cinnamon may help improve glucose and lipids levels in patients with type 2 diabetes, according to a study published in Diabetics Care.

The Apple skin in these muffins is full of fibre which helps our bowels keep things moving and helps to bind together our poo. We don't want to leave anything inside our bodies to toxify us now do we?
