Apple Pie Muffins

For Frog Prince's dissertation defense, we made LOTS of muffins.  We tried a new variety of muffins for this event...and they were a hit.

Apple Pie Muffins

2 C flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 C applesauce
1/2 C brown sugar, packed and a little heaping
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
6 medium apples, finely chopped

1/3 C brown sugar
1/2 C oatmeal
1 tsp. cinnamon

Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl. Then, mix together brown sugar, eggs, vanilla and applesauce.

Add diced apples to the flour mixture, and pour the applesauce mixture into the same mixture.

Stir to moisten the dough.

Fill muffin tins 3/4 of the way full with muffin dough.

Mix together topping of oatmeal, brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl, and spoon onto the top of the muffins.

Bake in a pre-heated oven at 375 for 15-20 minutes, until muffins are golden brown.

Allow muffins to cool in the muffin tin for 10 minutes before removing to cool on a wire wrack.

  1. Love the addition of applesauce in place of oil! I do that a lot! These look scrumptious and I wish I could reach right in and grab one! :)

  3. Your muffins sound perfect for a cold, fall weekend!

  4. Now that looks delicious and I love that you didn't use any oil! Thank you for sharing!

  6. I have found a lot of "apple pie" muffins lately and they all seem to differ slightly. I think I am going to have to try them all!!!

  7. I love apple pie and I love to make muffins, so combining the two is GREAT!!! in my book. THANKS!!! Geri

  8. Yum! These look delicious. I made apple muffins once and they were way too moist...maybe I'll try this recipe and hope for better results!

  9. Were the muffins a bribe or for energy :-)? They look delicious.

  11. to see lots of nut topping. Sounds just delicious!

  12. These look so delicious. I think I am going to have to try them. Once again you are always making something that looks so delicious. Thanks!!

  13. I made these on a Thursday night and they were still moist and delicious on Monday. Great snack or breakfast treat. They did soak through the paper liners. Not sure if that was from the apple sauce or for another reason. I just stored them on paper towels in plasticware. Two thumbs up!

  14. these are in the oven now, but i think i used too many apples bc my batter doesnt look as wet/doughy as your picture, we'll see how they work out
