This recipe has saved me plenty of times when there is nothing in the house to offer guests or when the kids are looking for a snack. Its so quick to make and quite tasty. I always get asked for the recipe after serving it to guests!

It is also the perfect recipe to make as an activity with small children because it is so easy. This is also a great group activity for a children's party. It can be the center stage activity in a baking themed birthday just add some sprinkles and icing so the kids can decorate them as well.

Super Easy Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Apples and cinnamon together create a delicious flavor combination and this recipe for apple cinnamon muffins is something you can whip up very quickly.

Many of the ingredients needed for this recipe are common staples we often have in our kitchens already.

This recipe is perfect when unexpected guests drop by and they are best served with a hot cup of tea or coffee. You can use any type of apple in this recipe as most types will bake well and give the muffin the unique apple flavor.

What Type of Apple is Best for Muffins?

Most types of apples will work well in this recipe. You can use whatever you have on hand especially if you are making them on a whim. There is no need to run out to purchase a specific kind of baking apple.

However, if you are preparing these ahead the most recommended apple types for baking (and this includes pies) are Macintosh and Granny Smith.

The white flesh of the Macintosh apple softens nicely and the Granny Smith has a nice sharp, tart taste that holds up well when baked. It really depends on the flavor you prefer.

Most apples will taste great when baked although I have noted that the Red Delicious is recommended more as an eating apple than for baking. I have never personally tried the red delicious as it has a very distinct flavor that I am not sure transfers well to a baked good.
