Apple Pie Muffins are soft, moist, apple muffins filled with apples and topped with a delicious crumb topping made of brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and melted butter.
These are perfect Apple Pie Muffins. I had one while it was still warm and another after it cooled down, just so I could tell you …they are amazing any way you want to eat them! The recipe yielded 16 regular muffins and the topping was enough to give them all a generous covering. These are perfect kids, it doesn’t get any better than this! We’re going to make Apple Pie Muffins together so you can see just how easy they are to make.
Every muffin recipe I’ve ever made starts out by placing the dry muffin ingredients in one bowl and the wet muffin ingredients in another bowl. Each bowl of ingredients is stirred in their separate bowls to mix the ingredients so that when they are combined together there is less stirring. The two bowls are combined and mixed together by stirring just long enough for the two sets of ingredients to be combined well without over stirring. Over stirring will create gluten, gluten makes baked goods tough. We don’t want tough muffins.
Place the dry Apple Pie Muffin ingredients into a large bowl.
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 Teaspoon baking soda
1/2 Teaspoon salt
Place the wet muffin ingredients into a separate medium-size bowl.
Wet Muffin Ingredients:
1 egg room temperature
1 cup buttermilk (room temperature)
1/2 cup melted butter (cooled to room temperature)
1 Teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
Stir the wet ingredients together until the brown sugar is dissolved and not laying on the bottom of the bowl.
Next, we’re going to stir the wet and dry ingredients together until they are blended together. Just blended together ok, remember the longer you stir the more gluten you produce. Add the chopped apples (make sure you are using a baking apple) to the bowl and stir to incorporate them evenly into the batter.
Line your muffin tins with paper liners and scoop the muffin batter into the liners to fill them to the top. Yes to the top, not 3/4 full, not half full. Fill the liners to the top. Set the pan aside, we’re going to make the topping.
Place the dry muffin topping ingredients into a medium-size bowl minus the 2 Tablespoons of melted butter.
Apple Pie Muffin Dry Topping Ingredients:
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 Teaspoon cinnamon
Stir to combine the ingredients.
Drizzle in the two Tablespoons of melted butter over the topping ingredients in the bowl while tossing the ingredients with a fork until everything is well blended.
Sprinkle the muffin batter with the topping. Bake the muffins in a preheated 375-degree oven for 25 minutes or until the tops of the muffins spring back when lightly pressed.

Danelle the whole muffin is delicious, you’re going to love them!
Apples and cinnamon are one of my favorite combinations. YUMMY!!
These sound wonderful, but please understand that Gala is not a good cooking apple. It’s too mild, soft, and mealy. Use Honeycrisp, Envy, or Granny Smith for the best taste and texture.
I must tell you these came out so wonderful, my husband loved them Thank you.
