What Are The Best Apples For Apple Cinnamon Muffins?

The apples you use will depend on personal preference. Granny Smith apples will be slightly tart and will work if you don’t want the muffins to be too sweet. Alternatively, if you like your muffins sweet, go for Gala, Honey Crisp, or Braeburn.


– To make these Apple Cinnamon Muffins vegan, replace the egg with flax eggs, and the butter with canola oil or applesauce.

– Use gluten-free flour if you’re baking these for gluten intolerant individuals.

– These muffins are healthy and make the perfect on-the-go snack! Freeze a bunch of muffins, pack them in for work or school, and they’ll be ready for a late breakfast! To make them even healthier, use wholewheat flour instead of all-purpose flour.

– To make the surface of the muffins slightly crispy, add a sprinkling of sugar over the muffins before baking. Alternatively, make a more indulgent cinnamon crumb topping. Whisk together ¼ cup sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, 2 tablespoons melted butter, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Sprinkle over the muffins and bake.

– This recipe will work with other fruits too. Use 2 cups of any of the following: chopped pear, mango pieces, blueberries, raspberries, or chopped strawberries.

– Make sure to chop the apple into equally sized pieces.
