Apple Pie Muffins
Yes, you read that title correctly – Apple Pie Muffins. You may recall that I have a minor muffin obsession. I like to bake them almost as much as I like to eat them. My obsession with those big bakery style muffins took over a recent baking related conversation that I had with Amber and we’ve both been on the search for muffin perfection ever since. When I stepped outside last week after a brief rainfall and got my first official whiff of fall – the only thing on my mind was apple muffins.
I didn’t want these to be typical muffins with barely recognizable pieces of apple and a little spice. I wanted these to be hearty, enthusiastically spiced apple muffins with big chunks of Granny Smith apples and a sweet and buttery crumble topping. Honestly – who doesn’t love a crumb topping. I could eat the stuff with a spoon. (Okay, I may have actually eaten the stuff with a spoon.)
These are quite possible my favorite muffins ever. They have all the goodness of apple pie – including the goodness of crust, thanks to that crumb topping. And they are completely portable, which means you can nosh on them for breakfast on your way to work (though watch out for the crumbs!).
Although these muffins may not have the same puffy look of beautiful muffins from the bakery, they taste incredible and are the perfect way to take advantage of apple season. As an added bonus, these apple muffins tasted even better the next day.
