Cinnamon Apple Muffins


This Cinnamon Apple Muffin recipe is super easy to pull together.  It doesn't take long to bake them up.  They taste SO GOOD with juice, hot tea and coffee; not too sweet but just right. Full of soft, sweet apple bits and the cinnamon just makes them hard to stop eating.  Top half the batch with a little brown sugar and oats and they're a fun snack to kill off the late afternoon munchies.  Treat yourself to a batch.  Bake a batch for your workmates.  They will love you for it!


  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 medium apple, cored, peeled, small dice
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Optional topping:

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats

HEAT OVEN 400ºF.  Grease bottoms of 12 medium muffin cups or line with paper baking cups.

In a small bowl, beat milk, oil and egg. Stir in diced apple. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.  Make a well and pour in wet ingredients.  Stir slowly just until flour is moistened--batter will be lumpy. Do not over stir.

Use a 2-inch scooper to divide batter evenly into muffin cups.  Should fill cups 2/3 full.  Sprinkle with brown sugar-oat topping if you want.

BAKE 18 to 20 minutes, until golden brown.  Immediately remove from pan.
Makes 1 dozen muffins.
