Treat time Tried and tested!!!

Treat time Tried and tested, and definitely delicious apple crumble muffins made a few weeks ago with Granny Smith apples fresh off the tree!  A perfect sweet snack that will also help fill you up because of the fibre, protein and healthy fats from the almond meal, chia seeds, apples and pecan nuts.
