I would LOVE to take credit for this amazing recipe and all of it’s tastiness. But, I cannot. I simply saw the recipe, knew they would be amazing and made them. Now I am sharing it with you because you really need to make them yourself. Someone recently told me about Cannelle Et Vanille, a lovely food blog filled with some of the most beautiful photography I have ever seen. On top of all of that, the recipes are all gluten-free :swoon:!
I had been wanting to make some type of apple muffin or bread ever since we had gone apple picking last weekend, so when I came across this recipe, I knew it was perfect. Let’s be honest, apples and cheese together are definitely drool-worthy. I am a big fan of savory for breakfast instead of overly sweet, so these have been the perfect morning meal for me the last few days. I used a really nice aged Gruyère that brings a nice earthy flavor to these muffins that are a bit sweet, a bit salty and perfectly moist. The nice thing about this recipe is you could also make it in loaf form instead of muffins. Bake it at the same temperature at 40 minutes instead of 20.
