  • 2

    Put the sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon and butter for the crumb topping recipe into the work bowl of a small food processor and pulse until mixture is crumb-like. Set aside.

  • 3

    Mix the flour (whole wheat and all purpose), baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a medium-large bowl to sift. Add the sugar and brown sugar, stir. Next, stir in the diced apple.

  • 4

    In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, applesauce, vanilla, oil, and milk.

More About This Recipe

  • I love the warm, comforting smells of apple and cinnamon baking during the fall. Or really anytime, but especially during the fall. There is just something about that cool, crisp air and the friendliness of those smells. They tell me: Sit back, relax. Read a book and snuggle up on the couch. Slow down, there's no need to hurry. When I think of comfort, I think of those smells.

    There are all kinds of great apple recipes to take advantage of during the fall. There's no need to be satisfied with apple pie alone. There are so many delicious apple recipes, you'll never be able to make them all: Apple Crisps and Crumbles, Pies and Tarts, Baked Apples, Caramel Apples, Galettes and Crostatas...and that's just the desserts! Don't forget the savory dishes. I love apples in stuffing for Thanksgiving, paired with pork chops, or even in a salad.

    This Apple Cinnamon Streusel Muffin recipe is perfect for times like these -- comforting and delicious.

    I could go on and on, but I'm getting hungry now! What's your favorite apple recipe?

Apple Cinnamon Streusel Muffins

I love Fall. It&rsquos my second favorite season to summer&ndashlet&rsquos face it, I love the beach, grilling out daily, and daily swims in our pool. However, I welcome the cooler for us Florida weather, and all the flavors that come with fall pumpkin and most importantly apple! Over the summer, my son and I would read this book called &ldquoOne Hungry Monsters&rdquo almost daily. The book ends with the little boy enjoying his apple muffin that the monsters never got. Every day/night my son would proclaim that he needed an apple muffin. If you have a little one&ndashyou have to get this book. It&rsquos the cutest, works on food, numbers, and rhyming!

During the first week of school, my son got very sick with a nasty virus which kept him out of school for over two weeks. During those first few days at home I decided to make him the apple muffins he had been asking for daily in hopes he would eat something. He had half a bite before laying back down again. I on the other hand probably ate almost the entire dozen within a weeks time. Stress eating at it&rsquos finest with a sick kid at home. I found this recipe for Apple Cinnamon Streusel Muffins from King Arthur Flour and adapted it with my streusel topping I make on my double blueberry crumb muffins. They are my absolute favorite muffins because of that crumb topping.

Recipe Summary

  • 1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup butter or margarine, melted
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup chopped apple
  • ½ cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x9 inch pan. Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon set aside.

In a large bowl, mix together melted butter, brown sugar, and 1/2 cup of white sugar with a wooden spoon until smooth. Stir in the egg and vanilla. Blend in the flour mixture until just combined, then stir in the apples and walnuts. Spread the mixture evenly into the prepared pan. In a cup or small bowl, stir together the remaining cinnamon and sugar sprinkle over the top of the bars.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in preheated oven finished bars should spring back when lightly touched. Cool in the pan, and cut into squares.

Jill those look fantastic (sort of like mini cakes). Hope you have a very Happy Birthday.

These look amazing! I would have this for cake. and then I would have a big slice of the ice cream cake as well.

The streusel topping makes those muffins exetrmely delicious!
I still prefer the muffin liners.

Hope you had a fabulous birthday! But your muffins look like a good enough reason to celebrate anytime. Sur La Table has some really fun and colorful paper liners that I like to use.

Happy birthday! You sure made a tasty choice to celebrate with. These do look very moist and the streusel topping with the glaze does tempt. Yum!

Beautiful pictures of some incredible looking muffins.

A perfect 10 from your Son is a great compliment. They look wonderful, can imagine they smell wonderful too. Love the placemats, another great pic!!

Happy Birthday! These muffins look fantastic - great streusel topping.

Happy Birthday Jill,
Great looking muffins, and I love the streusel topping. I'm with you about the liners. I just made muffins earlier in the week, and half of the muffin stuck to the liner. Next time I spray!

Happy birthday! Muffins look so good.

Happy Birthday, Jill! These muffins look so delicious!

1. Happy Birthday, Jill!
2. I LOVE the new design!
3. These look amazing! I love cinnamon and these muffins look so wonderful. Apples are my life right now!

This looks fantastic! I am totally making these tomorrow! Thanks for sharing. I usually use a muffin liner so I don't have to scrub the pan. Happy birthday to you and your son :)

First of all, Happy Birthday.
You know what, I think some products were created to be together, so nothing better that apple + cinnamon, the perfect match.

Happy Birthday! The muffins look amazing! It really depends on the muffins and my mood. I like the muffin liners because they are so convenient and portable. . but you have a good point!

Happy birthday! Hope you had a wonderful day! These muffins are beauties. I love anything apple and am definitely trying these. I always use paper liners but try to keep some inexpensive ones on hand for non-blogging purposes. Michael's had some cute ones in the dollar bins!

Happy Birthday! I usually use liners for convenience, but I totally agree with you about leaving half the muffin on the paper - such a bummer. Especially with muffins as tasty as these. Your muffins look fabulous!

Your muffins look so delicious! I also don't use the paper liners - I just spray the muffin cups

Jill-Your apple, cinnamon muffins look so pretty, yummy, and festive with the beautiful drizzle!
Happy Birthday to you!
Love the new Dessert Gallery on your blog. I have this rule: paper liners for cupcakes, and NO liners for muffins. they never stick to the pan!
Bookmarked your recipe, to print out. thanks for sharing!

WOW..This looks awesome..Yummy

Do visit my blog too

Those look fabulous! I love apple streusel so I'd be thrilled for these to be my birthday treats :)

I always use muffin liners but that's because my muffin tin in a bad way, bless it. One day, I'll get a proper muffin tin. I may go crazy and even get a MINI muffin tin :)

Wanted you to know that I made these today and they are delicious.

Mmmmm. I think I'd rather have these than cake! Belated happy birthday to you!!

Wonderful recipe and photo. I want to try them!

Happy birthday Jill , the muffins look beautiful . Hope you had a great day :) .

Happy Birthday! The muffins look delicious- I love the apples in them. :) I only use liners for muffins if I'm taking them somewhere. I just use a nonstick muffin pan.

I often use liners, as I just find it a little neater that way. These muffins look great! (Hope you had a great birthday.)

Happy birthday Jill! These muffins look perfect, and your photography always is super! I usually use paper liners, sometimes I'm disappointed in them though. The best ones are the pricey kind that are shiny inside and hold their color duing baking.

Happy Birthday Jill and CONGRATULATIONS! You won the Kuhn Rikon Cookie Press from my Virtual Cookie Exchange. Please email me at [email protected] so that I can get the info needed so you'll have your cookie press in time for the holidays.

Oh and by the way, your muffins look sensational along with your photos. I'm a muffin fan so will save this recipe to make at a later date. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Happy Belated Birthday Jill! I was wondering how you folks are doing and I'm glad I've stopped by. When family birthdays are close together, compounding cakes can be too much at once. Good on you to graciously defer to your son's pending birthday. I sure wish I had a few of these beautiful muffins to share with my family in the morning. May you & yours enjoy a holiday filled with peace, love and thanks!

What beautiful muffins and Happy Belated Birthday Jill. Hope you weel is going well.

Apple Streusel Muffins

These muffins are comfort muffins. They are Sunday morning special breakfast muffins. They are “pair with the best cup of coffee” muffins. They are “I’ve watched too much Breaking Bad and I’m so anxious and I need something to calm down” muffins.

They are “wake up in the middle of the night and remember you made muffins this morning” muffins. These are just damn good “you definitely need to make these” muffins.

P.S.-The actual muffins are dairy free and egg free. But I did pair them with some dairy free honey butter that was sooo tasty. So not totally vegan. But you could swap out the honey for some maple syrup. That actually sounds really tasty!

Also, if you don’t care about any of this being vegan, you can swap the coconut milk and lemon juice mixture for buttermilk. You can also swap the applesauce for 2 eggs. Just eliminate the baking powder if you do that.


Step 1
Step 2

Line a muffin pan with Reynolds® StayBrite®Baking Cups and set aside. Soften the apples by folding the apples, sugar and lemon juice in a large bowl and set aside.

Step 3

In another large bowl combine flour, dark brown sugar, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg baking powder, baking soda. Pour in melted butter and mix with a fork or your fingers until a crumbly flour mixture is formed.

Step 4

In a medium bowl, mix together eggs, buttermilk and vanilla to create buttermilk mixture. Once incorporated, add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture and fold in macerated apples.

Step 5

Use an ice cream scooper to scoop mixture into the baking cups.

To make the streusel topping:

Add flour, brown sugar, cold unsalted butter and ground cinnamon to a food processor and pulse until crumbly (do not over pulse it should be clumpy). Crumble streusel over each muffin mixture and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Allow muffins to completely cool then dust with confectioner sugar.


These apple cinnamon muffins try to pack as much of the fruit as possible, with the two essential ingredients being fresh pieces of apples and applesauce.
