Apple Cinnamon Muffins

I’ve been a little MIA this past week here – my apologies. I’ve been trying to get my website hosting switched and things are never as easy as you expect them to be! But here I am! I may not have been posting but I have been in the kitchen. And I’ve got some great recipes coming up. But on to today’s recipe. When Fall rolls around, I really love to cook with apples. They pair so well with those Fall spices. So I’ve got some great Apple Cinnamon Muffins to share with you today.

Apple Cinnamon Muffins

I really love these muffins in the morning with my smoothie. They are low on sweetness and have soft apple chunks baked right in. It’s best to think of these as a savoury muffin and not a sweet muffin. You could always up the honey content in these or even drizzle some over top if you did want a sweeter taste. But I find the apples add a bit of that sweetness as well.

I love how the apple in these muffins keeps them super moist and soft. You can use any type of apple you like – I do find the softerย apples bake into the muffin better. They also have coconut oil and honey which keeps them from drying out as well. You should get roughly 10 muffins out of this, depending on how much you fill the muffin tins. I always like to make things more often (especially if it’s an easy recipe) and eat them within a few days. Keeps them fresh and soft!

  4. I love apple muffins. Your apple cinnamon muffins look delicious. Thanks for sharing at Snickerdoodle. Pinning.

  5. Okay, so I decided to go for these since my husband loves apple anything! The only issue is that I used olive oil instead of coconut because that’s what I had at home and was too lazy to go to the store. The batter was delicious so I hope I think they will still taste good. Thanks for another recipe!
