Apple Muffins

These apple muffins are incredibly moist and full of apple flavor. Super easy to make and a great way to use up those apples you have laying around. Add this one to your “keeper” file because these apple muffins are tasty.
We are down to one laptop again so I haven’t been able to post anything. John’s busy doing taxes so I guess he gets priority on the laptop. Remember when I shamelessly begged for your recipes…well I didn’t really expect to get any but I did get a couple from you. Thank you. It absolutely made my day!

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 got an email from Marissa with her favorite apple muffin recipe. They are so easy. I literally had them in the oven in under 10 minutes. We sat down to watch the Olympics and I handed John a warm muffin.

He semi-shouted “Wow.”

I quickly scanned the TV to see what I had missed in the speed skating.

“No…the muffins. They’re really good.”

These muffins have a brown sugar topping that gives the top a slight crunch and then the bottom is super moist. Love ‘em. Thanks for the recipe Marissa.

Apple Muffins

Yield: 18 minions


  • 2 cups sugar (or use 1 1/2 cups for a less sweet muffin)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 cups peeled, cored, diced apples (around 3 apples)
  • Brown sugar for topping (around 1/2 cup)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line muffin pan with paper liners.
  2. Cream together sugar, eggs, oil, and vanilla. Sift flour, baking soda, salt, and ground cinnamon (I never sift and they turn out fine). Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture and mix until combined. The batter will be very thick. Add the diced apples.
  3. Fill paper liners almost to the top, about 3/4 of the way full. Sprinkle with brown sugar.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-24 minutes. Makes 18 muffins.

    Thanks for the recipe. I cooked 8 muffins and had enough dough left to cook a bunt pan loaf and it turned out really moist. It is really good.!!!!
