Healthy Apple Butter-Filled Muffins

I’m impatient. Its only June and I’m already dreaming of fall. I know, I know, but its my favorite season! So, I still had some home made apple butter in my pantry from last fall and I wanted to use it up…so why wait? I’m the girl who eats pumpkin butter in April..anyway…I found this recipe for apple butter-filled muffins and it looked delightful. I made some healthy substitutions and they came out really tasty.
