Apple Streusel Muffins

The weather has finally turned to more chilly weather after this heatwave of a Fall we have had so far! I love sweatshirt and jean weather and all it makes me want to do is bake like crazy! We are lucky to have two apple trees in our yard that produce apples by the truckload, and with apples come 7 million apple recipes. These apple streusel muffins are amazing with overflowing pieces of tart apple and the sweet powdered sugar glaze on top!

These apple muffins are amazing as soon as the cold brisk fall weather hits. The glaze added on top gives the semi-savory muffins a sweet added bonus!


  • Cinnamon Streusel Topping:
  • 2/3 c. flour
  • 1/4 c. brown sugar
  • 2 Tbs. sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 5 Tbs. unsalted butter, melted
  • Apple Muffins:
  • 2 c. flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. apple pie spice
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 large apples, peeled and diced (or 4 small)
  • Vanilla Glaze:
  • 1/2 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tbs. 2% or whole milk



Cinnamon Streusel Topping:


Whisk together the flour, brown sugar, sugar, and cinnamon. Stir in the melted butter until incorporated and use your fingers or a fork to for into crumbs.




Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin tin with liners and set aside. In a stand mixer, combine the butter and sugar until fluffy. Turn the mixer to low and add the eggs mixing well. Scrape down the sides of the bowl if necessary. Add the dry ingredients on low speed along with the apples until the mixture is combined together and sticky (do not over-mix). Use a large spoon or cookie scoop to evenly divide the batter among the prepared muffin tin cups. Top with the streusel mix and press slightly. Bake for 17-20 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let cool at least half way before adding the glaze.




Whisk together the powdered sugar and milk until you reach the consistency you desire ( you can always add more powdered sugar or milk if it is too runny or dry). Drizzle with a fork or spoon on top of the muffins.
