Apple Cinnamon Muffins

I found this fabulous recipe while browsing on Baking Bites.  I have made some apple muffins before but they turned out a bit dry in my opinion.  These were just right!  I did have to bake these a lot longer than the recipe calls for.  That’s ovens for you!  My husband and I enjoyed a few of these for breakfast for a few days and then I packaged up the rest and put them in the freezer for future breakfasts.

Enjoy!100_3730Yup!  I had to eat that one after I was done with pictures!  Yummy!

Apple Cinnamon Muffins

source: Baking Bites

Ingredients

2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground ginger
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
2 tbsp butter, melted and cooled
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 cups diced apple

3 tbsp coarse sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375F. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and spices.
In a large bowl, whisk together brown sugar and egg. Whisk in melted butter, vegetable oil and vanilla. Working in two or three additions, alternately stir in flour mixture and buttermilk, ending with an addition of flour and mixing only until no streaks of flour remain visible in the batter. Stir in diced apple.
Divide batter evenly into prepared muffin cups filling each to the top, or slightly over.
In a small bowl, stir together coarse sugar and additional 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon. Sprinkle generously over muffins.
Bake for 15-18 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean and the top springs back when lightly pressed.
Cool muffins on a wire rack.

Makes 12.
