Recipe of the Week: Apple Cinnamon Muffins

I love making this recipe on Sundays so I have a breakfast to look forward to every morning that week! I wake up so early; I hate cooking breakfast in the morning. The only way I eat is if I already have something prepared. These muffins a great option in the morning with a piece of fruit and a cup of coffee. It keeps me full all morning.

Apple Cinnamon Muffins
2 cups skim milk
1 medium apple
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 egg
2 tbsp olive oil
16 tablespoons light brown sugar
3 tbsp cinnamon
1 1/3 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups white flour

1 tbsp baking soda
1 tbsp Smart Balance
2 tbsp semi sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all wet ingredients in one large bowl, blending on low speed. Combine all dry ingredients, except the chocolate and white flour, in another, smaller bowl. Mix the two bowls together on low speed until smooth. Then mix in the white flour a half cup at a time. Use your Smart Balance to grease the muffin tins and use an ice cream scoop to measure the amount of batter per muffin. Cook for 30 minutes and then let cool.
