Apple Crumble Muffins.

Apple crumble is a favourite of many! It's so comforting but also so yum! It's not quite the season for apple crumble as it's beginning to warm up here in Melbourne but I hadn't made muffins in such a long time and I felt like making something different... So Apple Crumble Muffins!


Whilst they do take a little more prep time than usual muffins, they're still really easy to make. If you've followed my instagram and recipes for a while then I'm sure you'd expect that. I don't have the patience, the time or the energy to be fussing around in the kitchen for hours!


If you use gluten free oats these are gluten free, dairy free, egg free and completely plant based!
