Easy Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Just like it says... easy... and full of yummy apple chunks.

Ingredients:

MUFFINS:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 medium apples, peeled, cored and chopped

TOPPING:

  • 1/4 cup granulated white sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin or line with paper muffin liners.
  2. In a medium bowl whisk together dry ingredients. Add oil, egg and milk and stir just until combined. Fold in apples. Divide batter between the 12 muffin cups.
  3. In a small bowl, mix topping ingredients, blending together with a pastry cutter or fork. Sprinkle over unbaked muffins.
  4. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center of muffin comes out clean.

Tips:

*To lighten up the recipe a bit, fill the 1/3 cup measuring cup with 1/2 applesauce and 1/2 oil. The muffins will turn out just as moist.
*This recipe may also be made with white whole wheat flour in place of traditional whole wheat flour.

    Batter seems thick. What should I do? Double checked the recipe twice.

    Mine all fell in and are really dry and fall apart 🙁 the only thing I changed was using all purpose flour, since I didn’t have whole wheat on hand.

    What type of Apple works best for this recipe?

    • September 26th, 2016 @ 7:41 AM

      I like to use Granny Smith apples for baking.

    Quick, easy and delicious!  I substituted 1/4 c milled flax seed for 1/4 c flour as I didn’t have any whole wheat in the house.  Love that you can add the wet into the dry (saves a bowl from needing washing!).

    Could I use apple cider instead of milk?

    • October 28th, 2016 @ 9:11 AM

      I’ve not tried anything but milk, so I’m not sure!

    Batter was thick, but no problem muffins turned out fine. I used all purpose flour for all flour in recipe, Honeycrisp and Gala apples,. added a bit of vanilla, half diced caramel cube per muffin and placed into batter in muffin cup before adding topping. Also added pecans to half of recipe. My hubby loves them! As a bonus the house smells wonderful. Thanks for sharing.
