Easy Apple Muffins

Muffins are great for making with kids because you don’t need to break out the mixer and you don’t have to worry if there are lumps in your batter.

Muffins are incredibly forgiving – despite spills and occasional missed ingredients, I’ve never had a batch turn out truly horrible so you can just focus on having a great time baking with the kids and not worry if things don’t go perfectly.

Plus, unlike more sugary desserts, you won’t have to hesitate to let the kids indulge in their creations.

These apple cinnamon muffins are moist thanks to the inclusion of applesauce, with a delicious apple-cinnamon flavor that just tastes like fall.

This is a great recipe to make when you need to use up a couple bruised apples – which we always have plenty of after a trip to the apple orchard. (One of my favorite fall traditions!)

How to Make Apple Cinnamon Muffins with Kids

Preheat oven to 375°F and line a muffin tin with disposable liners. (We also love these non-stick silicon baking cups because muffins and cupcakes pop right out of them!)

Sift the flour and baking powder into a mixing bowl. Add the sugar and mix.

Add the butter and mix well, using a hand or stand mixer.

Add the egg, milk, applesauce, and vanilla. Continue mixing until you get a homogeneous batter.

Fold in half the apple slices and scoop into the liners.

Top with the remaining apple slices and take to the oven for 20 minutes or until done.

Remove from the oven and let muffins cool down for 5 minutes before serving. If freezing, allow to cool to room temperature before placing in an airtight container.

    1. Absolutely! If you’re adding more than 1/4 cup I would reduce the flour a bit. For example – if adding 1/2 cup of oats, I would reduce the flour by 1/4 cup.
