APPLE MUFFINS

I had just bought a pack of 16 apples from Costco and was wondering how in the world I was going to eat all of them when I decided to make these apple muffins.

They are so easy. I literally had them in the oven in under 10 minutes. We sat down to watch television and I handed John a warm muffin.

He semi-shouted “Wow.”

I quickly scanned the TV to see what I had missed.

No…the muffins. They’re really good. 

These apple muffins have a brown sugar topping that gives the top a slight crunch and then the inside is super moist. Love ’em. 

 

EASY APPLE MUFFINS

green apples

Green apples are often used in baking because their slightly tart flavor offsets the sweetness of the baked goods.

diced apples

You want the apples diced fairly small so they cook while baking.

SHOULD THE BATTER BE THIS THICK?

Yes! When you’re mixing it, it will be the texture of cookie dough and when you add in the apples the moisture from the apples will thin it out a tiny bit. It should still be really thick though.

Fill the muffin tins 3/4 of the way full. The muffins will rise a little but not a ton.

  1. You can reduce the sugar from two cups to 1 1/2 cups.
