Cinnamon Apple Muffins

I have a load of apples from my trees and have been looking around for some good desserts. I made this recipe, which I found online, last night for my elementary PTA meeting.

Cinnamon Apple Muffins

1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup butter, melted*
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 cup finely chopped apples

Heat oven to 375F. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and cinnamon in medium bowl. Add all remaining ingredients. Stir just until flour is moistened. Spoon batter into muffin liners. Bake 18-23 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes.

*Substitute butter with Canola Oil.

**I used the substitution of Canola Oil. I thought it was much quicker to use that instead. Also, I made mini muffins instead of the larger. You want to do everything the same except you bake them for only 10 minutes and without lines. Be sure to spray the muffin pan so they don't stick if you plan on not using liners.


  1. my kids are so sick of cereal...this looks like a great breakfast alternative!

  3. This is a wonderful recipe. It is almost comfort food. That is high praise.

    Thanks for linking this to my brand new link, Let's Do lunch.

    Muffins are great from breakfast, brunch or lunch.

  4. I love anything with cinnamon and apples in it. I just made apple brownies with cinnamon-sugar on top. Great presentation in the bucket. By the way, I'm holding a CSN giveaway on my blog and you're welcome to come by and enter.
