Apple Fritter Muffins

Breakfast today was inspired by an apple fritter recipe. Instead of frying the batter, I decided to bake it like muffins and serve them with warm maple syrup. The result: delicious! Fritters are predominantly fruit (in this case, apples) with just a little batter. This translates well to these muffins. You could also serve these topped with a little ice cream for dessert. (Each muffin has 2 points.) Enjoy!

Apple Fritter Muffins
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. allspice
1/2 tsp. salt
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup skim milk
1 Tbsp. cream
3 apples, cut into small chunks

1. Combine flour and next 4 ingredients. Combine egg and next 2 ingredients. Stir into flour mixture. Gently stir in apples (don't overmix). Spoon batter into lightly greased muffin cups
2. Bake at 400° for 20 to 25 minutes or until done.
