Every year, I fill our summer calendar with loads of fun things to keep us busy. This year, the boys participated in free library classes where they learned coding basics. Both boys also spent time honing their skills at cooking school. They’ve had the best time! Now onto that delicious muffin recipe.
Easy Apple Cinnamon Muffins
These easy apple cinnamon muffins are so moist because I swap eggs for unsweetened applesauce. Yes, this muffin recipe is eggless! And to give these a crunch, I topped them with Kellogg’s® Cinnamon Frosted Flakes®.
Measurements with easy to follow printable directions are available at the bottom of this post.
- Fuji apples
- granulated sugar
- all-purpose flour
- packed light brown sugar
- baking powder
- ground cinnamon
- salted butter, room temperature
- unsweetened applesauce
- Kellogg’s® Cinnamon Frosted Flakes®
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Next, lightly grease a 12-cup muffin pan with cooking spray or liners.
Place diced apple and sugar in a small bowl and toss to coat. Set aside for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, whisk together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a large bowl.
Stir milk, butter, vanilla, and applesauce into the bowl with sugared apples. Mix together, and then combine with dry ingredients. Stir and fold the wet and dry ingredients until well combined. Divide batter into the muffin pan. Grab a handful of Kellogg’s® Cinnamon Frosted Flakes® and crumble over the muffin tops. You can also push some of the cereal into the batter if you’d like an extra crunch!
Bake for 16-18 minutes. Let cool in pan for a few minutes, then move the muffins to a wire rack for another 10-15 minutes. Then dig in!
