I cut nice, solid chunks of apple to add into the batter. My apple of choice was Granny Smith, but any other variety that holds up well in baking will work (20 Ounce, Cortland etc.). But I constantly find myself coming back to Granny Smith’s when I cook. They add this fantastic tartness the breaks up the typical sweetness of baked goods.

The finishing touch was a sprinkle of Turbinado sugar. This adds a glorious crunchy texture to the top of them and looks like pretty little diamonds on top of these gorgeous muffins.

This recipe actually makes a couple dozen muffins, so it’s excellent if you’re feeding a crowd. You can easily freeze half the batch or better yet share it with a beloved friend or family member (because what better way to share love than with freshly baked muffins?).

I’ll tell you this, when I brought a batch of these into work, my coworkers went at it like a pack of hungry wolves and I’m pretty sure there were no regrets.

    October 26, 2016 at 11:57 am Love these muffins - so perfect for fall. I'd like one right now with my coffee as I read your blogpost:). PS - You might want to check the serving size. It says 1 muffin but I'm sure you meant a dozen or 18. laura@motherwouldknow recently posted...Halloween Pomegranate NegroniMy Profile

    March 24, 2017 at 10:51 am Would I use unsweetened applesauce?

      March 24, 2017 at 2:51 pm I think you can- I don't find there to be a huge difference between the two in terms of sweetness because the sugar content is so high in apples to begin with.I;m sure you can come across variations based on the type of apples, but I'm not sure that it would affect it adversely. I could be wrong. Let me know how they turn out!
