Moist-As-Heck Apple Butter Muffins Recipe With Cinnamon Sugar Topping

Blueberry muffins, chocolate chip muffins, chocolate muffins. Apple muffins need some recognition, too! These moist apple butter muffins with cinnamon-sugar topping are just what we need on our breakfast, brunch, dessert or snack plates. So good!

The easy apple butter muffins have a short ingredient list: apple butter, brown sugar, butter, eggs, vanilla extract, flour, baking powder and ground cinnamon. The ingredients are stirred together and baked in muffin tins until moist and golden. Serve these apple butter muffins hot out of the oven for breakfast, brunch or dessert. Wrap them individually in plastic wrap and pack in lunchboxes or your purse for snacking.

  • If you like a more domed top on your muffins, let the batter sit at room temperature for about 20 minutes before baking.
