Cheddar Cheese Muffins


2 cups Tree Top Fresh Green Apple Chunks
⅓ cup Tree Top Apple Juice Concentrate
1 tbsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
⅛ tsp fresh ground pepper
¼ cup sugar
1 tsp baked apple flavor
2 cups flour
1½ cups coarsely grated medium cheddar cheese
1 large egg
¼ cup butter, melted (room temperature)


Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease muffin cups, or line with paper baking cups. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, baked apple flavor, sugar and pepper. Add cheese, tossing with fingers to distribute evenly. In a small bowl, whisk egg, milk, butter and apple concentrate. Fold into dry mixture gently with a rubber spatula, just until all ingredients are moist. Fold in apples until evenly distributed. Scoop batter into muffin cups. Bake 18-20 minutes, or until center springs back to the touch. Turn out onto wire rack and cool.
