Bake up these deliciously easy Homemade Apple Muffins to enjoy the fall flavors of cinnamon and apple. So tasty!
These Homemade Apple Muffins would also taste great with chopped walnuts or pecans, but we have to avoid nuts due to allergies in my family. I think the texture would be fantastic!
Speaking of allergies, these muffins are dairy-free, so they're safe to share with those you know avoiding dairy.
I love enjoying one with a cup of tea on a chilly fall morning.
We've made these muffins many times. Sometimes I have tart apples on hand, sometimes I don't. That's why I said the chopped apple in the ingredient list is optional.
Don't stress about it! The flavor is great even without it, but you do get a neat texture with the pieces of apple inside.
