Cinnamon Apple Muffins

Pro tips:

  • When chopping the apple, keep the peel on; it adds texture, color and most importantly, fiber, to the muffins!
  • These will be very large “pop-over” style muffins, so don’t be alarmed by filling the muffin tins much higher than you are accustomed to.

Cinnamon Apple Muffins

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 20-25 minutes
Yield: 12 servings
Serving size: 1 muffin


  • 1½ cups all purpose flour

  • ½ cup sugar

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon allspice

  • ¼ teaspoon clove

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • ⅓ cup plain, nonfat Greek yogurt

  • ⅔ cup Silk® Unsweetened Original Almondmilk

  • 1 sweet apple, diced (such as a Braeburn)

  • 2 tablespoons sugar

  • 1 tablespoon all purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold

  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F and line 12 muffin tins with paper liners, or spray generously with nonstick cooking spray, and set aside.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients.

  3. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the egg, vanilla, yogurt and almondmilk.

  4. Pour the liquid mix into the dry mix and stir to combine with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula.

  5. Fold in the diced apples and spoon the batter into the prepared muffin tins.

  6. In a small mixing bowl, add the streusel topping ingredients, and break up the butter with your fingers. Evenly sprinkle the topping over the unbaked muffins.

  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick or cake tester comes out clean when inserted in the center.

  8. Allow to rest in the muffin tins for 5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack for at least 15 minutes before serving.
