Apple Pie Muffins

I combined a couple of recipes from my Pillsbury cookbook to create these crowd pleasers. They are so yummy and perfect for brunch or breakfast!

Apple Pie Muffins
  • 2 cups wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup apple juice
  • 1 cup finely chopped apples
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Grease bottoms of 12 muffin cups. In medium bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt - mix well. In a small bowl combine buttermilk, juice, oil and egg. Blend well. Add to dry ingredients. Stir until you get a thick batter. Add chopped apples. (I like to add dried cranberries or frozen blueberries as well). Fill muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake for 18-22 minutes. In a small dish melt butter. In a separate small dish combine sugar and cinnamon. Loosen muffins with a knife and pop out of pan. Dip in melted butter and then in sugar mixture. Place on serving dish and serve warm.

Heart Healthy Tip: Replace oil with applesauce and buttermilk with fat free milk
