Apple Cinnamon Muffins (Whole Wheat and Rye Flour)

Sunday morning: outside - 6 degrees and October showers, inside - the smell of freshly baked apple cinnamon muffins. Served mine(s) with buttermilk. 

Recipe makes 12 regular sized muffins.

Preheat oven at 400 F.

In a large bowl combine:
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup dark rye flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- cinnamon

In a medium bowl mix together:
- 2 whole eggs
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 1/2 cup agave syrup
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- pure vanilla extract

Add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined, do not over mix.  Fold in:
- 2 medium size apples (cored, skin on) grated

Line 12 muffin cups with paper lining and fill them with the batter. 
Place in the oven and bake for ~ 20 minutes, until the tops are golden brown, and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
