Easy apple breakfast muffins that are quick to make and delicious. The perfect recipe for those busy mornings when you need breakfast on the go!
Before we get started talking about these apple breakfast muffins, I have a little back story to share. When my kids were young, I wasn’t very good at breakfast. I wasn’t one of those moms who got up early and made pancakes before school. (Does anyone really do that?) My daughter wasn’t a breakfast eater anyway, and my son was perfectly satisfied with a bowl of cereal. Or at least I thought he was. If I had known how easy it is to make a healthy but homemade breakfast, I think I would have been better at it. Or at least I would like to think so.
These muffins are easy and quick to throw together. They are moist and when you hit a bite of apple, it’s like hitting the jackpot. They don’t have anything weird in them that kids wouldn’t like. In fact, I would say they are very kid friendly. I wish I could go back, make these for breakfast and hear what my kids had to say. Of course I can’t, so I’m sharing them with the hope that someone out there does it for me. Here’s the recipe…

Apple Breakfast Muffins Tips
- I made a dozen regular sized muffins but you could make mini muffins for smaller servings.
- I used Honeycrisp apples and they worked well. I didn’t peel them and they stayed firm in the batter.
- I considered putting a streusel topping on the muffins, but that would definitely cut down on the healthy factor. If you aren’t worried about that, then I think any sort of streusel would be amazing.
