1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons honey
1 cup apples, peeled and diced
2 tablespoon raisins
Preheat oven to 400ºF.

Tips and Variations:
- Add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts for extra crunch and even better nutritional value.
- Do not overmix the muffin batter! When you add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mix them together only enough to make sure everything is moistened. Overmixing produces a less tender muffin.
