Apple Sage Muffins

Developing a new appreciation for sage, and a taste for herbed muffins. The one disappointment was that the apples “disappeared” in this. Perhaps cut into small cubes rather than grated, they would preserve a more distinctive texture and flavor. Pretty tasty nonethless, at once savory and subtely sweet. Thanks to Tasting Spoons for the recipe!

1 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup cornmeal

3 tablespoons goat cheese, feta, or parmesan (optional)
