Cinnamon Apple Muffins + Giveaway

 Cinnamon Apple Muffin Recipe by Crunchies Natural Food Company

The holidays are among us which means there will be a lot of friends and family coming to visit.  I love having treats that are made ahead of time this way I'm not confined to the kitchen.  I love to sit down, have a cup of coffee and enjoy spending time together.  These Cinnamon Apple Muffins are perfect to make ahead of time, freeze and then thaw when you're ready to serve.  I used Crunchies freeze-dried snacks for a twist and it worked out perfectly.

Have you tried Crunchies?  They only work with farmers they know, and pick the ripest fruit at the right time to make sure you have a mouthwatering burst of flavor in every bite. 

Our fruit and vegetables are harvested at the perfect ripeness, cleaned and then quickly frozen. The frozen fruit and vegetables undergo freeze drying with a special combination of temperature and pressure. The majority of the frozen water in the fruit and vegetables turns directly into water vapor, leaving the fruit and vegetables dry and crunchy. This unique process retains most of the color, flavor, and nutritional value of the fresh fruit. Taste the difference!

Traceability: We are the only freeze-dried fruit company who owns their supply chain from field to fork. We source fruit directly from farmers who grow it.  

Taste: We know many healthy snacks don’t taste that great, so we place an extra focus on the taste of our food. We ensure a crunchy, fruity flavor burst in every bite.

Quality: Our food is pure – nothing but fruit from farmers who we know and trust. 

Simplicity: We like to keep things simple, from our food to our packaging. By giving you a convenient “no hassle, no mess – perfect on-the-go snack,” we hope to inspire you to rethink the way that you snack.
