Apple Muffins

Apple Muffins

This is another recipe that I have been making for years. The recipe came from my sister and makes a perfect fall muffin. We love these for breakfast, but they also make a great afternoon snack for the kids.

Apple Muffins

I like that these have both apples and applesauce in them. It gives them a great apple flavor.

I haven’t made these in awhile and decided to make them recently. They were gone in no time. They are a must make for fall!

  1. Those look great! I saw on a blog somewhere this wk to use a yogurt container with the bottom cut out to add struesel/crumb topping. Just a little tip for you, I think I will try it next time.

  2. Awesome! I’ve bookmarked these for the weekend 🙂

  3. sound delicous

  4. Oooh, yum! These look delish, Lynn! 😀

  5. I really like to collect muffin recipes. I try to make a different recipe each time I make some. I will have to add this recipe to my collection. Geri

  6. My son made these yesterday and they are almost gone! Delicious!!!!! You might want to revise your instructions, though. They don’t tell you when to add the applesauce. I don’t think it much matters because he did it the 12 year old way and just sorta through everything together and they are awesome. Thanks.

  7. I just made these (and doubled the recipe for the freezer) and they are wonderful!
    My husband likes to take different things for breakfast each morning to work and he loves muffins and apples so I think he’ll really like these!
    Thanks for the great recipes!!!!

  8. I had a big bag of Granny Smith I did not know what to do with so I made your Apple muffins this morning. They were wonderful! All 3 of my boys loved them. This recipe is a keeper.
    Thanks for sharing.

  9. My daughter, 8, is making these right now. She’s currently putting the crumb topping on them…….unfortunately, I just read the comments and realized we forgot to add the applesauce! Oh well, hopefully they’ll turn out okay, and not too dry. 🙁

    • @Alex Hall, I hope they still turn out for you. They might be a little dry, but hopefully they are still good and you enjoy them.

    • @Alex Hall, well, they look great, smell great and have passed the kid test (I have yet to try them)….I just wonder how much better they’d be with the applesauce. At least I know that I can still make them if we’re out of applesauce! 🙂

  10. These look great!! I want to make them for breakfast but have 3 questions:
    When do you add the applesauce? Apples ‘sliced’ how? And any apple in particular, or whatever you have in the fridge? Thanks so much!!

    • Thank you for pointing out that I did not have when to add the applesauce. I can not believe that no one else has caught that. Thanks! You add it after the eggs and I fixed the recipe to include that. The slices depend on what you want and how large you want the actually chunks I usually do more like chunks than actual slices. Sour apples usually work better for baking, so that is what I suggest for these, but other kinds would work okay as well. I hope that helps.

  11. Lynn, my son and I made this this afternoon-holy yum! definitely a keeper! thanks for another family fav!

    I made your pumpkin muffins but added most of a bag of chopped butterscotch chips. I shared with neighbors and 9 yr old grandson and all of them raved about being the best muffin ever! Soooo I’m going to try your apple muffin recipe with the addition of chopped cinnamon chips and see what kind of comments I get. 🙂 thanks for sharing your recipes with us!

    • I love the idea of butterscotch chips added to the pumpkin muffins and also the cinnamon chips added to these. I used to add those cinnamon chips to homemade bread for a cinnamon bread and it was delicious. I haven’t used them in a long time, but now I am going to try that. Thanks for sharing what you did.
