This Fall my toddlers and I have been baking a lot of pumpkin treats. I wanted to switch it up and use another great Fall flavour, apples. I bake with apples all year round because they’re always available but apple baked goods in the Fall always taste the best.

Why You’ll Love These Muffins

Perfect muffin texture – These muffins are so soft, fluffy, and moist! Paired with the crunchy topping they really have the perfect texture.

Easy to make- The muffins are made in one bowl and use simple ingredients you probably already have at home.

Amazing Taste- Apples and cinnamon are such a fantastic food combination and not overly sweet. These muffins are great for fall but you can enjoy them all year long!

How to Make These Muffins

Preheat oven to 425F and line muffin pan with liners. Peel and finely chop your apples until you have 1 cup worth. I find it takes 2 medium sized apples.

Muffin Batter

In a large bowl whisk together flour, sugars, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon. Add in the oil, milk, beaten egg and mix just until combined. Fold in the chopped apples. Add batter to the muffin pans, filling them 3/4 full.

Streusel Topping

In a small bowl whisk together flour, sugar, and cinnamon together. Add in the melted butter and mix everything together. The mixture will be the texture of wet sand.

Sprinkle streusel topping evenly over muffin batter.

Bake for 5 minutes at 425 F then reduce oven temperature to 350 F and bake for an additional 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool in the muffin pan for 5 minutes before removing to cool on a wire rack.

What type of apples should I use?

You can use any type of apple, it does not need to be a baking apple! Baking apples are used when you want the apple to keep it’s shape when baked. Since we are cutting our pieces up small to mix in with the batter any apple type will do!

Storing the Muffins

These muffins should be stored at room temperature in an airtight container up to 3 days after baking. These muffins are best enjoyed on the same day they’re baked. After the topping will start to lose their crunch, but still taste great.
