Scrumptious whole-grain streusel topped apple muffins full of warm, spicy cinnamon and delicious soft chunks of apple that are perfect for breakfast or brunch or a snack anytime.
Fall is in full effect here, which means its apple muffin time! If I had to describe what fall tastes like it would be these apple muffins. Something about the combination of apples, cinnamon and brown sugar that’s just so yum!
Now I know you may be thinking, not another apple muffin recipe, but hold on. My muffins aren’t just your basic apple muffins. Nope.
They’re a bit different and you wanna know why?
Kodiak Cakes Buttermilk & Honey Flapjack and Waffle Mix. Yes, you read that right! I use a flapjack mix instead of white flour to make my muffins. And let me tell you, this flapjack mix is soooo good!
Not only is it made with 100% whole grains and natural non-gmo ingredients, but it also has no added fat, cholesterol or sugar – win, win, win! For serious guys, you will not feel guilty for using this stuff at all. And it tastes great too. Another win!
Now before we move onto my delicious apple muffin recipe, let’s talk baking apples for a moment. If you’re anything like me, every time you decide to bake an apple ‘something’ you turn to google to find out “what’s the best apple for baking.” But let me save you the trouble. Simply use whatever type of apple you like, be it Granny Smiths, Jonagolds, Honeycrisps, Golden Delicious, Gala apples or whatever. When I made my last batch of apple muffins, I used a couple of Granny Smith apples that I had on hand, and they turned out just fine, so don’t over think it.
So give my apple muffin recipe a try and let me know what you think in the comments down below.
