Apple Muffins Recipe
Apple Muffins are soft, crumbly and bursting with apple goodness. These muffins taste just like apple pie!
Servings: 18 muffins
- 2 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
- 1/2 cup butter room temperature
- 1 cup buttermilk (or 1 c. milk + 1 tbsp. lemon juice, sit for 10 min)
- 1/4 cup applesauce plain
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice or apple pie spice
- 1 1/2 cup granny smith apples peeled and diced
- 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
- 1/4 cup rolled oats
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 4 tbsp butter melted
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a 12 cup muffin tin with papers.
To make the batter, in a medium size mixing bowl, combine flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon and spices. Whisk together until incorporated, set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream butter and sugars. Add egg, applesauce, and vanilla, mix on low until combined. With mixer on low speed, alternate buttermilk and dry ingredients, adding about ⅓ of each mixture at a time, until remaining ingredients are gone. Remove bowl from stand and fold in apples. Scoop mixture in to prepared muffin tin (fill just a tad bit over ¾ of the way).
For the Topping
To prepare the topping, in a small mixing bowl, combine all ingredients. Mix until clumps begin to form. Sprinkle over each individual muffin. Place in oven and bake for 22-25 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean. The muffins should have a little spring to them and the topping should be golden brown and crunchy.
Remove and let cool in pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
