Recipe Notes

This is just a base recipe; to make the apple muffins, add 19 ounces of the apple pie filling. Any other flavors of muffins will take usually 6 ounces of any add-ins you want to throw in here. I like to have fancy struesel by adding rolled oats to mine. This is definitely optional though.
