Giant Eagle Fuelperks

Guys, I have a secret to tell you. I like saving money. Actually, I love saving money. Yes, I enjoy online shopping sprees during late night nursing sessions as much as the next mom, but there is something about getting a good deal on something that is so rewarding! That’s why I have been a longtime fan of Giant Eagle and their Advantage card and fuelperks program. I love going there to stock up on essentials at their low prices and purchase gift cards that all add up to earn me up money off gas at any GetGo. It’s a great feeling to be able to save money on gas just by buying groceries that I need anyway!

That’s why I was so excited to find out that Giant Eagle has made it even easier to save with their Fuel Perks Plus program. Now I can save even more money and earn more fuelperks just by shopping at Giant Eagle for my everyday purchases. Just by using my Advantage Card, I get discounts on prescription copays, GetGo’s gas and gift cards and I can redeem their points on up to 20% off my total grocery bill or earn up to a free tank of gas! Pretty amazing!

I tried out a healthier version of my Apple Bread the other week and I decided to make a muffin version. That way, they’d be perfect to grab and go for my husband on his way to work as breakfast, or for me to grab and go as I chase my daughter around in the mornings. I needed some more cane sugar and apples for the recipe as well as other various groceries so we headed to Giant Eagle to stock up, grab a few gift cards (I like to stock up for easy gifts, especially around the holidays!) and then go to GetGo to fill my car up with gas. So much saving going on!

If you want to learn more about Giant Eagle’s awesome fuelperks program or sign-up, head to their site. It does’t cost anything to sign-up and it will save you so much money! Trust me on this one. Here are just a few of the awesome things about the program:

  • Get discounts on GetGo’s gas and prescription copays, Curbside Express orders and gift cards.
  • Redeem points on up to 20% off your total grocery bill or up to a free tank of gas!
  • Perks accumulated beyond the current price of fuel or above 20% may be used on a future shopping trip.

The Best Apple Muffins

Ok, so now for the recipe! I took out a little (ok, A LOT) of sugar from my original Apple Bread recipe. I also swapped the regular sugar for Organic Cane sugar. (Yes, I know, it’s still sugar.) These are so darn good. They are full of flavor and the apple chunks in them are just perfection. The perfect fall muffin!

giant eagle fuelperks the best apple muffins

– 3 cups flour
– 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
– 1/4 tsp nutmeg
– 1 tsp baking soda
– 1 tsp salt
– 1/4 tsp baking powder
– 3 eggs
– 1 cup organic cane sugar
– 1 cup coconut oil, melted
– 3 tablespoons almond milk
– 1 tbsp vanilla
– 2 medium sized apples, diced
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Mix flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and baking powder together in a medium bowl or bowl of a stand mixer and set aside.
2. Beat eggs in a medium bowl and add in sugar and oil.  Mix until combined.
3. Add in the vanilla, then gradually stir into the dry ingredients. The batter will be very thick.
4. Gently, fold in the apples.
5. Divide evenly into a 12 capacity, greased muffin tin.
6. Put muffins in oven at 375 for five minutes only! This is to help them get nice full tops.*
7. After 5 minutes at 375, reduce heat to 350 and continue to cook for 25 minutes, or until a tooth pick inserted into the middle of one will come out clean.
8. Cool on a wire rack.

*Alternatively, you can bake at 350 for 30 minutes, but they will be considerably flatter on top!*
