Apple Chocolate Chip Muffins

I came across this recipe in a Christmas Cookbook last night, but I changed it a little for our family. My daughter loves muffins with chocolate chips in them. She also wouldn't like knowing there were apples in the muffins, so I grated them, but I left the peels on for extra nutrition. The texture of these muffins were wonderful and they have a nice almond flavor. I'll be making these again soon!

Apple Chocolate Chip Muffins

1 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup shortening
1 egg
1/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 1/2 cup shredded apple(I left the peel on)
3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips, you don't have to add these

Topping

1/2 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Measure all the dry ingredients into a bowl and whisk. In another bowl cream the shortening and sugar for 3 minutes. Add the egg, milk, vanilla and almond extract. Add the sugar, egg mixture to the flour mixture, add in the grated apple and chocolate chips and stir until just mixed. Scoop into greased muffin tins with a 1/2 cup ice cream scoop. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 - 24 minutes. Remove from muffin tin to a wire rack to cool for a few minutes. Dip the tops in topping and set on a platter to serve.

Topping

Mix melted butter, sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl with a whisk.

How interesting. I would have never thought of mixing apples and chocolate chips in a muffin.
