I make muffins all the time because my dad loves them and takes them to work every day. Making him muffins regularly ensures that I stay his favourite child. 🙂 These apple crumb muffins are a cross between an apple muffin and coffee cake. The topping on these apple crumb muffins is the perfect touch.
Inside the apple crumb muffins there are chunks of cooked apple, making this a delicious treat any time of the day, even breakfast. I love to bring these muffins with me when I go on hikes or have picnics with my friends. They are a crowd favourite, especially after walking when everyone is looking for something tasty to fuel them up and recharge their energy!
Top of the muffin to you!
I love to make this recipe in the fall when there are lots of ripe local apples for sale, and they are so tasty!! These muffins are also perfect for making when you have a bunch of apples in your fridge that need to be used up. I’m huge on creating the least amount of food waste in my house, so I am always looking for ways to incorporate older foods in my fridge into delicious recipes.

If you happen to make this recipe during the fall, I found that it tastes incredible with any hot drink on a cold fall day!! My favourite hot beverage is any tea or coffee, but hot chocolate also tastes fantastic paired with this muffin as well!! Try heating your muffins or eating them while still warm from the oven while cozying up on a cold day.
Have a great day! Thanks for all your support and love! ❤ Let me know if you try these Apple Crumb Muffins.
