Apple Crisp Muffins


Last week I mentioned my addiction to honeycrisp apples and asked you for recipes. I am sad to say that no one responded to me. :( I guess next time I'll try seeking you out on Facebook.

I was going through my recipes on Pinterest and found that I had saved this recipe back in September. Kristin also used honeycrisp apples for these muffins, so I thought it was the perfect choice to slowly attempt to empty out (or at least reduce the size) of the bowl o'apples.

    • 1 1/2 cups flour
    • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
    • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
    • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
    • 1/4 tsp. salt 
    • 4 tbsp. unsalted butter, at room temperature
    • 1/3 cup sugar
    • 1/3 cup brown sugar
    • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
    • 1/4 cup canola oil 
    • 1 egg
    • 1 tsp. vanilla
    • 1 1/2 cups Honeycrisp apples, peeled and chopped 
Crisp Topping:
  • 4 tbsp. unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon 
1. Preheat the oven to 350. Line a muffin pan with 10 liners.
2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt and stir.
3. In the bowl of your stand mixer, add butter, both sugars, oil and applesauce and beat until smooth. Then add in the egg and vanilla.
4. Once fully combined, slowly add in the flour mixture until a soft dough forms. Stir in the chopped apples by hand.
5. Divide the batter between the muffin pans.
6. Prepare the crisp by mixing all of the ingredients together in a small bowl until well combined, then add a heaping tablespoon on top of the batter.
7. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden. Transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool.

It doesn't take much out of a muffin to make me happy, but chopping the apples slightly larger than usual really gives this muffin a nice slight crunch when you bite into the apple. And really, can you ever go wrong with a crisp that includes brown sugar? I think not.
