This time of year we are always trying to keep up with our apple tree. We have an apple tree in our yard that produces tons of apples each Fall. In an effort to use them in different and interesting ways, we have made Apple Cookies and Apple Crisp. Recently we used some backyard apples in this Apple Muffins Recipe. The only thing better than making yummy apple muffins is making them with some some little kitchen helpers.
I am excited to be participating in the Kids’ Kitchen Monthly Blog Hop once again. Each month, I am joining some of my favorite kid bloggers, sharing recipes that are perfect to make with kids. This month, we are each sharing recipes using Apples or Pumpkins. Lots of good stuff here to try for Fall. Be sure to check out the links at the bottom of the post for more recipes from the other participating bloggers.
Apple Muffins Recipe
For this recipe, I used my basic muffin recipe and made a few tweaks to account for the addition of the apples and some other spices.
Measuring and mixing have always been some of my kids’ favorite kitchen activities.
I peeled and chopped some apples into small pieces and we added them to our batter. Peeling and chopping is an adults only job in our house.
Once we mixed up the batter for this Apple Muffins Recipe, we scooped it into a muffin pan. You can use cupcake liners if you want or just grease a muffin tin.
You’ll need to let these muffins cool a bit before eating, but they are amazing when served still a bit warm.
You can try this recipe with a variety of apples. Granny Smith are good as are any used in baking.
This apple muffins recipe was a big hit with my sous chefs!

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Pour the flour, baking powder, salt and a dash of cinnamon into a bowl and stir to combine.
In another bowl, beat the egg and add the sugar, brown sugar and milk. Mix. Stir in the cooled, melted butter.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix to combine. Fold in 1 cup of peeled and chopped apples.
Fill your muffin tin with cupcake liners or grease with cooking spray and fill each 3/4 full with the batter.
Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.
