cups all-purpose flour
teaspoon baking soda
teaspoon ground cinnamon
cup vegetable oil
teaspoon vanilla extract
cups diced peeled apple
cup chopped walnuts(optional)
Heat the oven to 400ºF. Spray 12 (3-inch) muffin-pan cups with vegetable cooking spray.
Stir the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl.
Beat the oil and sugar with an electric mixer at medium speed in a medium bowl for 2 minutes. Add the eggs and vanilla extract and beat for 1 minute.
Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and stir just until combined. Fold in the apples, raisins, and walnuts, if desired. Spoon the batter into the muffin-pan cups.
Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Let the muffins cool in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes.
