Preheat the oven. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Spray the muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.
Whisk the wet ingredients. In a large bowl, whisk together the Greek yogurt, applesauce, brown sugar, granulated sugar, eggs, and almond extract.
Blend the dry ingredients. In a medium-sized bowl, blend the flour, flax seeds, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
Combine the wet and dry ingredients. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring until almost combined. Add apples. Stir until just incorporated. Scoop into muffin tin.
Bake. Bake at 425°F for 8 minutes then turn the temperature down to 350°F and bake for an additional 7 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
You can use muffin liners, but these muffins without oil do tend to stick to the liner. Spraying the pan works best. Only fill each muffin tin 3/4 full to prevent the muffins from spilling over. Peel the apples before dicing and mixing them into the batter.
