Apple, Raisin and Cinnamon Muffins

Apple, Raisin and Cinnamon Muffins
Apparently today is Blue Monday - the most depressing day of the year. It also happens to be the day before my birthday and as this year I am nudging ever closer to the big 30, I do happen to be feeling a little 'blue'. I needed some baking therapy and these apple muffins were whipped up to alleviate my mood. They are not overly sweet, which was intentional as I wanted to be able to toast them to serve with some sharp cheddar (as well as eating as they are) for tomorrows 'birthday' lunch, if there are any left!
