Usually on my Sunday evenings, I try to make a new baked good recipe. Not only for myself but for my kids. This way it will last us throughout the week. This week I decided to try something a little different by using apricots. I love just eating apricots but my kids aren’t a fan. Hiding them in a muffin might be a good solution.

And guess what, they loved them!! YES!!  

This recipe only took me 15 minutes to get ready and just a quick 20 minutes of baking time. Easy and a great choice for snack time!
