Missing the Fall? In love with apple pie?
Yes, these fluffy muffins are most certainly for you. This fun take on apple pie is truly tasty and a family favorite! I made these around 2 pm and they were gone by 10 pm. No joke.
I think the BEST part of these muffins is the texture. Their fluff factor is off the charts. So moist and scrumptious. And they taste with fall and apple pie. Um, what?? Perfection.
I love to enjoy these bad boys in the morning paired with some yogurt and even with a little nut butter before an afternoon workout. I could not recommend these anymore, a true must bake in my books!

What are the best baking tools for these apple pie muffins?
I’ve got you covered! Here is a list of my kitchen baking tool staples:
