These are delicious with or without the 1/2 cup of chocolate chips or 1 cup of finely diced apple to the batter but adding bursts of sweetness really make this muffin stand out.

This is important knowledge to have if you might find yourself lost while hiking but it’s also useful information to teach our children.
