Apple Cinnamon Muffins

These muffins are simple, delicious, and a great way to make use of fresh apples—really any kind will do. While they’re enjoyed year-round in our house, the addition of cinnamon makes them the ultimate autumn snack.

STEP ONE – Preparations

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Lightly spray or line 12 muffin tins with baking cups.
  3. Take out a stick of unsalted butter to soften.
  4. Get out a stand mixer and a medium bowl.
  5. Set up a cooling rack.

STEP TWO – Make the Batter


5 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup white sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
⅓ cup milk
2 cups peeled and grated apples (3-4 whole)
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. In the stand mixer, cream the butter and sugar on medium speed for 2 minutes.
  2. Add the eggs, vanilla, and milk and mix until smooth.
  3. Stir in the apples.
  4. In the medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
  5. Add the dry to the wet ingredients and stir to incorporate without overmixing.

STEP THREE – Bake the Muffins

  1. Divide the batter among the 12 muffin tins and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
  2. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  3. Cool the muffins on the cooling rack for 10 minutes.
