Caramel Apple Muffins - A Bountiful Love

Caramel Apple Muffins

  My husband is not a heavy breakfast kinda person. Our girls and I love our oatmeal with fruits and muffins in the morning. On my batch cooking day, I prepare several muffin mixes and bake a batch of muffins that will last us for at least 2 to 3 days. This meal prepping had saved me so much time in the kitchen and also money. It is cost-effective and you can always tweak your recipe to allow healthy substitution. Speaking of substitution, I have shared healthy and allergy-free substitutions. It came with a printable so you can refer to it as often as you need to,

 If you want to save money in your grocery budget, you can check out my post on 8 Make Ahead Homemade Muffin Mixes.  They are all money-saving and simple recipes to make.  If you want to collect more muffin recipes, follow my MUFFINS PINTEREST BOARDS. (I told you, I love muffins..a whole separate board just for muffins!)



1 3/4 cups chopped, peeled apples
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 3/4 chopped, peeled apples
1/2 cup vegetable or canola oil
1 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1 egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup buttermilk
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 1/2  tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda

Streusel :

1 tablespoon cold butter
1/3  cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Homemade Caramel Sauce


Preheat oven to 400 deg. Line your muffin tins,  with paper liners. Make the streusel topping first,  in a separate small bowl, combine all the streusel topping ingredients. With your fingers, combine until it looks like a crumbly mixture.

Prepare all the dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda)

In a separate bowl , combine the oil, brown sugar, buttermilk, egg, and vanilla extract.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mix until incorporated. Fold in the apples.

Spoon the batter into the muffin cup, divide the streusel topping among the muffins.

Bake for 15 minutes (at 400 degrees)  and then dial down the temperature to 350˚ F. Bake for an additional 12 minutes. Do the toothpick trick to know when it's done (poke the muffin, if the toothpick comes out clean .. it's done ).  Let the muffins cool for a little bit, for about 10 minutes, and drizzle with the Homemade Caramel Sauce.

Lovely to look at!

Are you convince yet? they are so good! 

Awesome with your morning cup of coffee.
