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 a cooking school. They’ve had the best time!
Easy Apple Cinnamon Muffins
Speaking of cooking, let’s get back to that yummy muffin recipe! These easy apple cinnamon muffins are so moist because I swap eggs for unsweetened applesauce. Yes, this recipe is eggless! I also opted for a fun crumble on top by using Kellogg’s® Cinnamon Frosted Flakes®. Read on to grab the recipe details.
- 1 ½ cups diced Fuji apples (typically 1 large apple)
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ tsp ground cinnamon
- ½ cup milk
- ½ cup salted butter, room temperature
- ½ cup 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!
These Easy Apple Cinnamon Muffins will be a huge hit with your family! They really are delicious, moist and pretty darn perfect if you ask me.

Do you kids enjoy reading? My boys read for about an hour each night. Many times, I find them asleep with an open book in their hands. It’s so adorable!
