Easy Apple Cinnamon Muffins

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



  • 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


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


  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.


*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.

      I’m sure that would be fine.

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

      I’m not sure- how did they turn out for you?

    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?

      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!).
