Apple Crumb Muffins

Apple Crumb Muffins

Apple season is here and it’s time to make these cinnamon apple muffins that have the most delicious brown sugar crumb topping! This recipe is perfect if you’ve accumulated some apples from your Sigona’s produce boxes. We personally like to use Granny Smith apples because they are tart, crunchy, and perfect for baking, but any apples you have on hand will do. 

Muffins

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar 
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar 
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature 
  • 1/2 cup greek yogurt, at room temperature 
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour (spooned & leveled) 
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda 
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder 
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 
  • 1/4 cup milk, at room temperature 
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, cored, peeled and chopped

Crumb Topping

  • 1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar 
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar 
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted 
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour (spooned & leveled)



  1. First, make the crumb topping by combining the two sugars, cinnamon, and butter in a medium bowl and mix with a hand mixer for two minutes. Then, fold in the flour with a rubber spatula until the mixture is crumbly and thick. Set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425°F and line a 12 count muffin tin with cupcake liners.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the butter and both sugars together with a hand mixer on high speed until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes. Then, add the eggs, yogurt, and vanilla extract. Beat on medium speed for 1 minute to combine.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  5. Add apples, milk, and dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Mix to combine.
  6. Spoon the mixture into the cupcake liners. When everything is evenly distributed, press the crumble into the tops of the batter. 
  7. Bake for 6 minutes at 425°F degrees, then turn the temperature down to 350°F degrees. Bake an additional 14-16 more minutes. Remove from the oven, and let cool slightly before enjoying!
