ZAP-ple Muffins

Thats what I told my 4 year old they were. Not that she needs any encouragement to eat something in the shape of a muffin! These are a sweet treat packed with chopped apples and zuchinni. The yogurt ensures they stay moist, and you have to love the hint of cinnamon. I made mini muffins and it made about 32 muffins. If you have a small scoop like the ones pampered chef sell it really helps to place the batter in the muffin tins. Enjoy!
