So needless to say we’ve been eating our fair share of green apples and in turn I want to share some recipes and ideas of all the green apple goodness we’ve been enjoying.
Let me start by saying that I love green apples period and they are pretty tasty on their own but when you have as many as we had you have to mix it up a bit to keep things interesting.

One of my go to ways to elevate an apple for a quick lunch, snack, or whatever is to add peanut butter.

It’s good for you and super tasty.  Miss Masterpiece enjoys this with me as well.

I also love to include green apples on my cheese boards.  This was a quick appetizer with mr. masterpiece as we enjoyed  some cocktails on the patio before dinner.

This is a classic pairing and it makes me feel way better to eat some fresh fruit along with all the yummy cheese.

I also made some delicious fall inspired green apple muffins.  I read a few recipes and this is what I came up with.
Remember to always assemble all your ingredients before you start preparing a recipe.

Also  make sure to read the recipe at least once; I usually read it about 2 or 3 times before I begin.

RECIPE:

yields: 30 muffins
ingredients:
4 large eggs
2 cups milk
1 cup vegetable oil
4 cups all purpose flour
2 cups granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon iodized salt
1 tablespoon pumpkin spice
1 teaspoon real vanilla extract
2 green apples
preheat oven to 350
Insert paper liners in your muffin tins.
In a large bowl mix eggs, milk, oil.
Integrate flour into wet mixture 1 cup at a time mixing well between each cup.
Integrate sugar into the mixture mixing well followed by the baking powder, salt, pumpkin spice and vanilla extract.
Then dice up your apples into small pieces and mix well into the batter.
{If you would like to have your apples all prepped before your start you can dice them and submerge them in lemon water so they don’t turn brown; just remember to dry them off on paper towels before you add them to the batter so you don’t have excess moisture}
Fill your muffin liners 3/4 of the way and bake for 20 minutes.
Enjoy them for breakfast, a tasty snack or even as dessert (they are sweet enough).
