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®


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Next, lightly grease a 12-cup muffin pan with cooking spray or liners. 2. Place diced apple and sugar in a small bowl and toss to coat. Set aside for 10 minutes. 3. Meanwhile, whisk together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a large bowl. 4. 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. 5. Divide batter into the muffin pan. 6. 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! 7. 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.
