Apple-Cinnamon Muffins

Apple-Cinnamon Muffins

After combining other apple muffin recipes and making modifications based on my and other reader's suggestions, I decided it was time to write this down as it's own recipe. This is a simple, delicious recipe that makes good use of our home-grown apples.

  • Serves: 12 persons



  1. Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners.
  2. Step 2

    Combine grated and chopped apples with white and brown sugars in a small bowl; stir and set aside to sweat for 5 minutes.
  3. Step 3

    Combine all-purpose and wheat flours, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a second bowl.
  4. Step 4

    Stir eggs, melted butter, olive oil, applesauce, and vanilla together in a large bowl. Add apple mixture and mix until well combined. Add flour mixture and stir until completely mixed; batter will be thick like cookie dough. Divide batter evenly among prepared muffin cups.
  5. Step 5

    Bake in the preheated oven until tops spring back when lightly pressed, about 19 minutes. Cool in the tin for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
