Today, I bring you my scrumptiously moist Apple Streusel Muffins! I believe this is my second apple recipe to appear on the blog, and it’s a good one. Not that my Homemade Apple Pie isn’t good, it’s SO good. And if you haven’t made it yet, why not make it this autumn? It’s the perfect comforting dessert to share with family!

So, back to these muffins. They are incredibly moist from using vegetable oil and Greek style yoghurt. Deliciously spiced with autumn flavours (cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves), and stuffed full of little juicy apple chunks. These muffins are the perfect breakfast, or on-the-go snack this autumn.

The streusel on top of these muffins is just delicious. It’s spiced with cinnamon, and gives a nice slight crunch to the muffins. If desired, you can make bigger crumbs. Just add another tablespoon of butter to the streusel recipe. If so, I would double the streusel recipe, as you will probably use more per muffin. But, who’s gonna say no to extra streusel? 😉

In these muffins, I have stuffed them with 3 small apples, peeled and chopped into small chunks. You can have less or an extra apple, it’s totally up to you! I found 3 apples to be plenty for me and my family; you’ll get delicious juicy apple in every bite!

    I made pumpkin muffins this past weekend, but with all the apples we picked from the orchard, I have a feeling that a muffin creation just might be in order. These look amazing!
