Apple Cinnamon Muffin Recipe
This apple cinnamon muffin recipe was a mistake recipe. I was trying to make apple strudel muffins, and missed a few steps and forgot to make the strudel all together. But they were awesome! Enjoy all things apple with pie, crisp and cake.
These apple muffins are packed full of delicious apples and so delicious with hints of cinnamon in every bite.
What Keeps Muffins From Being Dry?
If you have the ingredients at room temperature and mix the wet ingredients and then mix in the dry, you can have delicious fluffy cinnamon apple muffins.
Do You Need to Peel the Apples?
You definitely need to wash the apples before starting. If you chose not to peel the apples there will be more texture to the apples. If the apples have a thicker skin, you will want to peel them.
Do You Have To Use Fresh Apples?
You can use canned apples if desired. We have used apples that we canned for baking pies to make the recipe quickly. Fresh finely chopped apples are our go to for making these apple cinnamon muffins.
Do You Need to Melt the Butter Before Adding?
No, the butter should be nice and soft, easy to mix together. This will allow the butter to melt into the muffins and make them super delicious.
Do You Add Cinnamon Sugar to Muffins?
There are portions of cinnamon and sugar to the muffins. If you really love cinnamon, you can add more than what this recipe calls for.

Oh My! This looks delicious. Thanks for talking the time to post this.
You are welcome! I love apple muffins. Mine tend to have more apple than flour, making them healthier right? 🙂
Good recipe and the perfect serving size. Cake always dries out once it’s cut.
I would agree Lisa!
We tend to make cupcakes instead of cake, as we are not big cake eaters, but cupcakes are much more manageable for the kids (and we can control how much frosting they get too).
