To make a dozen muffins, you will need: all-purpose flour, Cabot Lowfat Vanilla Bean Greek Yogurt, Cabot Sharp Cheddar (shredded), brown sugar, eggs, milk, chopped apples, Cabot Whey Protein, and cinnamon.
First, preheat your oven to 350°F and get out a 12-cup muffin tin. Mix your dry ingredients together in a medium bowl and your wet ingredients together in a separate medium bowl, as directed below. Then add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until well blended. Add the cheese and apples and fold in, mixing until they are just incorporated into the batter. Fill muffin cups with batter until batter almost reaches the top of each cup. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the tops of muffins are golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool until muffins are safe to handle.
