Hi, I’m Laurie and I blog at Gallamore West. I’m a mom of four little boys and I blog about sweet recipes, fun crafts, and ways to make lasting memories with our kids. I’m thrilled to be here at A Little Tipsy today while Michelle hangs out with her newest little adorable man! I had been following Michelle in the online world for awhile, but we met in person at a blogging conference in Utah in the spring and she is a sweetheart, and a fellow member of the “Boy Mom” Club!
I’m excited to share my recipe for Apple Cinnamon Muffins with you today because they are delicious and fairly healthy too. They’re sweet enough to satisfy that darn sweet tooth of mine, but healthy enough to make me feel like I’m being a good mom when I make them for our boys for breakfast.
Apple Cinnamon Spice Muffins
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup apple sauce
1/4 cup white sugar
2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 cups all-purpose floor
1 1/2 cups peeled & diced Granny Smith apples
1/4 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare muffin tin with paper baking papers, or spray with nonstick spray. Pour apple sauce, sugars, and melted butter into bowl of stand mixer to combine. Add in eggs, one at a time, until smooth. Slowly add in milk and vanilla. Set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together all dry ingredients. Slowly add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and stir just until combined. Fold in the peeled, diced apples. Fill paper liners about 2/3 full. In a small bowl, stir together the 1/4 cup white sugar & the cinnamon. Sprinkle each muffin with cinnamon and sugar mixture. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove muffins from tin carefully and cool completely on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days. Enjoy!
I’d love to have you stop by Gallamore West to see what else I’ve been up to. Here are a few of my Fall Favorites…
