Apple Muffins

I kinda wish fall would last forever. Chilly weather (except here in Nor-Cal, it’s been in the 70s!), warm sweaters, multi-hued foliage, pumpkin anything, and apples.

These muffins were a hit in our house. I pretty much can’t look at an apple anymore without imagining it in muffin form. They’re a cinch to pull together and the house smells a-mazing while they’re baking.

Apple Muffins {Adapted from The Girl Who Ate Everything}


  • 1 1 /2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup oil
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 apples, peeled and diced (I pulse the apples in a food processor a couple of times)
  • 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. Using a whisk, mix flour, baking soda, salt, and ground cinnamon. Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture and mix until combined. The batter will be very thick. Add the diced apples.

3. Fill paper liners with 1/4 cup of batter. Sprinkle with brown sugar.

4. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-24 minutes.


The first grade students took a field trip based on the apple theme they were studying in school. Each child went home with a small jar of applesauce that they made during the day, an apple stamped tote bag and bookmark, and an apple muffin. The super lucky chaperones went home with a piece of an amazing apple cobbler. Yum.
