These healthy apple-cinnamon muffins will put you in an autumnal state of mind no matter the time of year. Sprinkling the muffins with sugar before baking gives them a crispy top, just like a coffee-shop muffin--but these are a whole lot more nutritious than your average coffee-shop muffin, thanks to wholesome ingredients like white whole-wheat flour. Serve them for breakfast or a grab-and-go snack. Source: Eatingwell.com, July 2019

  • Whisk flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Whisk eggs, buttermilk, brown sugar and vanilla in a medium bowl until smooth. Pour the buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture; fold gently until just combined. Stir in butter until well incorporated. Fold in apples.

  • Scoop about 1/3 cup batter into each prepared muffin cup. Sprinkle evenly with granulated sugar. Bake until the muffins are puffed and a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Let cool for about 20 minutes.

Tips

To make ahead: Wrap airtight and refrigerate for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
