These Apple Pie Muffins are just the thing to serve family and friends for breakfast with coffee or with milk as a snack anytime. They are delicious and make a wonderful breakfast on the go. Children and adults love these because they taste like apple pie but in a muffin!
1 (21 ounce) can apple pie filling (I use Duncan Hines Original Country Apple Pie Filling)
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup white granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup nut pieces, Optional
In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon. Add the vanilla extract, buttermilk, melted butter and eggs. Mix well with a spoon. Spray a 12 cup muffin tin, add about 1/4 cup batter to each cup. Drop about 1 tablespoon of the apple pie filling into the batter. Sprinkle nuts on top. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven 25 to 30 minutes until brown on top. Makes 18 muffins. Enjoy!
Note: You can make these with about any kind of pie filling. They keep well and easily reheat in the microwave. I refrigerate any leftover. We love the filling “oozing” out of the muffins. You could add raisins along with the nuts and you could sprinkle a little brown sugar and cinnamon on top before baking.
