Apple Kasha Muffins

This morning, my husband asked me to make a dinner from kasha.  Of course, the first recipe, I came across that I liked, was muffins so before I thought about dinner, I made these.  Using a fine ground kasha made the texture no different from regular flour muffins.  The spices gave it life and it turned out to be an enjoyable muffin.

Then came the time to figure out dinner and I found a recipe on the kasha box for a kasha chili which we are having during the week and which I will post.  I made it ahead of time and took a taste and I think, it is going to be good.
