Step 1In a large bowl, whisk together maple syrup, egg, oil and applesauce.
Step 2In another bowl, whisk together flour, wheat germ, baking powder, soda and cinnamon. Stir into egg mixture and stir gently. Add apples and cheese and stir to combine.
Step 3Divide batter into greased or paper lined muffin tins. Bake in 375° F (190° C) oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until tester inserted in centre comes out clean.
Make smaller muffins for smaller children to pack in their lunches as a full size muffin can usually be too much for them to eat in their snack time. Use a mini muffin tin and bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
