* The addition of yogurt or applesauce rather than oil creates a healthier and more moist muffin.

  2. In a medium sized bowl whisk together all the dry ingredients, just until blended.
  3. Combine all wet ingredients in a large bowl.

Additions for Apple Cinnamon Muffins:

These muffins are simple and delicious, and are the perfect vehicle for adding in a plethora of other delicious flavors.

  • Streusel Topping: If choosing to add a streusel topping to your muffins be sure to add it to the muffin right before you put the muffins in the oven. Streusel is one of my favorite additions and you will find it in most of my muffin recipes.
  • Walnuts add a great and healthy crunch to these otherwise moist and delicious muffins.
  • Raisins, dried cranberries, blueberries, or cherries pair nicely with the flavor of the apples and walnuts.
  • Maple extract can be used instead of vanilla for added sweetness and flavor.

No matter the season these quick and easy muffins are perfect for anytime. Whip up a batch and enjoy them with family and friends for breakfast and anytime.
