Apple Streusel Muffins

There’s nothing better than a fresh muffin with your morning coffee. Especially when it’s Apple Streusel Muffins.

My wife loves a good chocolate muffin with her morning coffee, but for me, I prefer something a little lighter. And this Apple Streusel Muffin recipe fits the bill perfectly.

Apple Streusel Muffins

At first, I can see how it may be a little intimidating to make these muffins as they require a few more steps than a regular muffin.

But it’s really not that difficult. Probably the most difficult part if you’ve never done it before, is cutting the butter into the flour. The trick is to make sure your butter is as cold as possible.

Apple Streusel Muffins

You will need the following ingredients to make this Apple Streusel Muffin recipe (see recipe card for quantities): Unsalted Butter, Light Brown Sugar, Eggs, Vanilla Extract, Cinnamon Applesauce, All Purpose Flour, Baking Soda, Baking Powder, Salt, White Sugar, Ground Cinnamon, Powdered Sugar and Milk.
