Apple Muffins

Muffin Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 Cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/4 Cup sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 Teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/8 Teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 Cup apple cider
  • 1/3 Cup olive oil
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Grated apple
  • 1 Chopped apple, small pieces


For topping:

  • 1/4 Cup flour
  • 1/4 Cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 Teaspoon ground allspice
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 Tablespoon olive oil

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Create the topping by mixing all ingredients in a small bowl with a spoon or your fingers.

Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. In another bowl, I like to use a large measuring cup, mix the wet ingredients. Create a well or hole in the middle of the dry ingredient mound and pour the wet mixture into the dry. Mix until combined. Gently fold apple ingredients into the mixture.

In a lightly greased muffin pan, fill each muffin 2/3 of the way full. This should make a dozen muffins. Evenly divide topping between each muffin, sprinkle on top.

Bake in the oven for 20-24 minutes.

Note: Depending on what apples you use, and if you leave the skins on your apples (I do), your muffins may have a green color, but no need to worry, its natural and perfectly fine.
