Divine White Chocolate Chunk & Apple Muffins! These one bowl muffins are soft, glorious and dreamy with those beautiful white chocolate melted chunks. I love to enjoy one of these with my morning tea or afternoon cuppa.

  • 1 1/2 cups (230g) plain all purpose flour, use gluten free flour if preferred
