These are delicious and a family favorite here. Who can resist a muffin that tastes like apple pie for breakfast.. I have also made these using splenda sugar substitutes, and sunflower oil vs butter to reduce the calories a bit and make them a bit more heart healthy. They are just as good.
"Just made these, and had one with some double cream, I cannot get across how lovely these muffins are, they are so light and fluffy, I've never made muffins before, but I will certainly make these again, I changed absolutely nothing of the recipe, they're perfect as they are, although I did have to convert the cups into grams as I'm in the UK. Beautiful, thanks for sharing it! "- Lisa230

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 12 cup muffin pan.
In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In a large bowl, beat together butter, sugar and eggs until smooth. Mix in vanilla. Stir in apples, and gradually blend in the flour mixture. Spoon the mixture into the prepared muffin pan.
In a small bowl, mix brown sugar, flour and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture is like coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over tops of mixture in muffin pan.
Bake 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Allow to sit 5 minutes before removing muffins from pan. Cool on a wire rack.

kirstin_kuchta 3 months agoThe brown sugar topping was the best part of the muffin!
luckamacm 6 months agoAbsolutely delicious. My first time making muffins and they came out great. Used olive oil instead of the butter but still amazing. Definitely will be making again.

dgemeals 12 months agoA new family favorite! We added 1/2 cup chopped walnuts to the mix, and 1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts to the topping for extra crunch! It was the perfect and delicious way to start off our holiday mornings with a good cup of coffee!

dgemeals 1 year agoVery tasty! Added walnuts to dough and streusel topping for extra crunch!
gingerekholm 1 year agoVery good! Great way to use apples from the orchard!!! Did add 1/4 c rice milk to loosen up batter, but didn't notice any difference in moisture so I'll skip the milk next time and try applesauce. Also used a small ice cream scooper to put batter in muffin tins--worked great!
Mburkhart 1 year agoThese muffins are superb!!! Doubled the recipe and used freshly picked apples- AWESOME!
CookingDiva11 1 year agoVery yummy and easy too!!
lucypeppercorn 1 year agoAbsolutely delicious. Great for a student snack or for breakfast. Very quick and easy with minimal washing up!! We also snapped up two dairymilk bars into chunks instead of the apple. Fantastic choco version!!

angelahollmanhappel 1 year agoThese were a big hit in my family. I used whole wheat flour and did add about 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce to them, and they came out really well. My kids ask for them regularly.
lydiaccb 1 year agoSo good. Looking forward to adding pecans. Only change I made was adding some lemon peel and juice of 1/2 lemon. I forgot the streussel topping :-(
Geometricalrain 1 year agoI made a few changes, for the flour I used 1.5 cup GF flour mix & 1/2 cup almond meal. In place of one egg I used 1Tbsp ground flax meal& 3 Tbsp water. Subbed half the butter for 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce plus 2-3 Tbsp applesauce to thin out the batter.. I tossed the chopped apple with cinnamon& added cinnamon to the topping. Very good!
millie-9 1 year agoThese were just great. Didn't put the topping on for calories but they were good. Used whole wheat flour.
