I absolutely love these Apple Pie Muffins and make them whenever the mood strikes me, at any time of the year! They are super moist, full of apples and the topping is too delicious for words!
I love to dice up the apples into small pieces just to make sure I can taste them! I have tried shredding the apples but I prefer to taste a small piece of apple in every bite of these Apple Pie Muffins.
We just love apples in this house and I am going to give you a few links to have a look at that include some of my favorite apple recipes! Maybe you will find some more that interest you! Anything is possible!
You can use your favorite variety of apple to make these Apple Pie Muffins. I usually use whatever apples I have on hand, or is on sale, but I love to mix sweet apples, like McIntosh apples, with sour apples, like Granny Smith to make up the two cups you need for this recipe. Regardless of which apple you choose to use these muffins will not disappoint!
You also have a choice of whether to use walnuts or pecans in the topping for these Apple Pie Muffins, or no nuts at all! My favorite nuts to use are pecans but I usually go with whatever I grab first or no nuts at all. To be honest I am not sure if anyone notices a difference with or without them. I have never heard a complaint and they disappear so fast!
These muffins freeze beautifully as well, even though most of the time I have no need to freeze them. There generally aren’t enough around long enough to bother!
Apple Pie Muffins can be used as a dessert, snack or as a breakfast or brunch. I ate two the other night while watching a movie. I know that’s not the best idea but I just couldn’t help myself. This time of year also makes me start to crave Our Favorite Stuffed Pumpkin Muffins which are definitely worth a look at!
Another debate between my husband and I, this might just make you laugh, is he prefers to eat the muffin top first and I have to save the best for last! Every time I make these Apple Pie Muffins he always brings that up! Hopefully I am not the only one who eats muffins this way. Am I?
You also do not have to use liners to make these muffins. I just find cleanup so much easier and of course serving them in cups makes them look prettier!
We have been talking for a while now about making sure these Apple Pie Muffins go up on the site and luckily we have made a video to show you. Hopefully you enjoy them as much as we do! I can’t wait to hear what you think of them!
