We are sharing an Apple Muffins recipe. This is for apple mini muffins but, you can adapt the recipe to fit your muffin pans. What’s not to love about an easy baking recipe? Especially when it tastes yummy. I know in my house they rather have a muffin than grab a bowl of cereal for breakfast. Muffins go good with tea or coffee. Pairs well with other items for serving guests. Think brunch or it can just be a baked snack. 

If you rather bake something else, here’s where to see all our muffin recipes

This recipe has oatmeal in the muffins. I haven’t adapted this recipe for full-size muffins yet. If you need a full-size muffin recipe try our Harvest Apple Cider Muffin or Carrot Apple Muffins recipe. I’ll list them at the end of the post for you, along with with my apple recipes Pinterest board.

For this recipe, you will need mini cupcake liners and a mini cupcake pan. Many of the other supplies you might just have on hand in your pantry. Toss in the addition of fresh apples, eggs, and milk. You will have this recipe made in no time flat.

The Recipe does call for apple butter. You can make it homemade in a small batch on your stove in advance. Small Batch Apple Butter Recipe (I don’t use cloves or nutmeg, you can omit it if you like too or leave it. ) Or purchase a jar of organic apple butter. It’s not expensive and easy to grab.

What I love about apples is that you can find many varieties all year long. Here’s a handy apple list of what apples are great for baking and cooking from the Farmer’s Almanac.

Living in CA makes it easy to find fresh apples. You can always look up apple farms near you to grab the freshest. I love this resource for when certain types of apples are available and in what areas near you! Resource: PickYourOwn.Org/apples
