Apple cinnamon muffins are a classic favorite, made even more delicious thanks to a streusel topping crumbled over the top.

These muffins are a favorite treat for anytime of year, but fall especially!

Serve warm with butter for breakfast, snack, or dessert. 

These muffins have me feeling all the cozy fall vibes!

Stir in the dry ingredients until just combined. 

Peel and dice the apples into small pieces, then fold into the batter. 

Once you have filled the muffin liners, make the streusel topping to sprinkle over the tops.

Bake until a toothpick inserted comes out clean and enjoy!

These muffins are the perfect sweetness without being over the top sweet.

The streusel topping is my favorite part!

It is sweet and crumbly and makes these taste like muffins fresh from a bakery. 

These were gone in less than a day at our house. 

Give these a try and let me know what you think!
