Apple Oatmeal Muffins

Good morning everyone! I am feeling so refreshed after having a really fantastic four days off. I did lots of cleaning, cooking, sleeping, reading, and spending quality time with my love. On Saturday I planned our valentines day celebration; couples massages followed by an ‘urban sweat’ session (check it out here), and then we tried a new vegan restaurant I had been wanting to go to!

Yesterday I meal prepped for the (short) week ahead and made these Apple Oatmeal Muffins for Sean’s breakfast. I did try one and they were really good! The batter recipe calls for a lot of sugar but I left it out ❤
