These Apple Hazelnut Muffins are just the right thing for busy autumn mornings.

You know those mornings I mean right? The ones where you only get out of bed after you realise that there is no way you can get the children to the school bus unless everything runs absolutely perfectly, so you pray that you have remembered to pack everything they need the night before.

Those mornings when you need the encouragement of something lovely for you to look forward to, and something that you know that the children will eat, fast, and still have enough goodness in them to last the morning.

Mornings like that call for hearty grab-and-go muffins like Apple Hazelnut Muffins. They do the job with ease.

Tip for Making Perfect Apple Hazelnut Muffins

Unlike those mornings where nothing seems to go right, these muffins can’t go wrong, as long as you chop the apples the right size – just under 1cm cubed.

I hope you love these glorious Apple Hazelnut Muffins, folks. They are perfect for busy mornings or just because.
