Cinnamon Chai Spiced Muffins

Tea time with Apple Cinnamon Chai Spice Muffins, made with Michele's Apple Cinnamon Toasted Muesli

We love it when simple ingredients come together to make something even more special than the sum of its parts. That could describe our Toasted Muesli—a uniquely delicious recipe featuring wholesome oats, nuts, seeds and dried fruit—or these tender, gently spiced muffins.
