The air is crisp and clean, and the orchards are scented with fresh cut grass and the sweet smell of fruits. As big puffy clouds float across our beautiful blue skies this fall, you will find me apple picking with my family. It’s one of my favorite activities. While connecting with nature, I love to listen to the laughter and excitement that  comes from my kids as they fill our bucket reaching for the tallest branches where clusters of the most colorful red and green apples grow.      

When you get home have fun making apple sauce, apple pie, or try these delicious apple date muffins:

 

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups flour

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 egg, lightly beaten

1 1/2 cup milk

1 cup All Bran cereal

1/2 cup flax seeds
