How to make cinnamon apple muffins
(Full ingredients and instructions in the printable recipe card at the bottom of this post).
First, combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt.
Whisk the wet ingredients – eggs, honey, maple syrup, coconut oil, and yogurt.
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.
I’m not gonna lie, 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!
