I know in the fall, when there’s newly picked apples to be had, I love to make apple recipes. There is just something about fall and apples. This mini apple muffin recipe is really delicious. I added a nut crumble topping to them to add a little crunch and extra flavor. This recipe can be made dairy and egg free too.

Servings: 36 muffins
Author: Shelly


  • Muffin Batter
  • 1 egg or 1T soy flour and 1 T water
  • 1/2 cup Milk soy milk, almond
  • 1 cup grated apple
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1 1/2 cup Flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • Nut Crumble Topping
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup chopped nuts I used almonds
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


  • Make Muffin Batter
  • Mix all the dry ingredients together with a whisk to mix them well.
  • Add the wet ingredients and mix until the flour is just moistened. The batter will be lumpy, be careful not over mix.
  • Spoon batter into greased muffin tins. Then make the nut crumble topping.
  • To Make the Nut Crumble Topping
  • Mix together the brown sugar, chopped nuts and cinnamon in a bowl.
  • Sprinkle on top of the muffin.
  • Bake 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown. I like to bake my muffins in the upper third of the oven so the tops get nice and golden.
  • Let cool about 3-5 minutes and then remove from muffin pans and enjoy.
