This recipe for Apple Muffins is your go-to recipe for quick and easy breakfast muffins. Made with cinnamon, apples, and all the fall flavors.
Bake up a quick batch of cinnamon-spiced apple muffins for breakfast or a snack. Filled with apples, walnuts and a whole lot of goodness. Once fall shows up, it’s all about spiced apple or pumpkin anything! Speaking of which, prepare your season with my homemade Pumpkin Spice to have on hand.
Apple Muffins Recipe with Cinnamon Spice
I’ve had this recipe for years. It’s one of those recipes that you can swap out the apples with another fruit….. whatever you’re craving, or whatever you may have on hand.
Since I have a few apples around from our apple trees, I find myself looking for ways to use them up. I’ve got lots of apple recipes on TCL…. because can you really have too many apple recipes? I think my all-time favorite thing to do is make Slow Cooker Homemade Apple Sauce.
