Apple Pie Muffins -TSLC

Apple pie muffins 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!

Apple pie muffins will quickly become a favorite.

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

2 eggs

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.

    These turned out so good. I made 11 full sized and 24 mini muffins which are a great size for the grand kids! I used a 15 oz can of pie filling and it was plenty of filling!

  2. I baked these this morning. They were good, but a little too cakey for my taste. I put little rounds of parchment cut to fit my muffin pan and it made getting them out much easier. Nice recipe.

  3. They look delicious! Can’t wait to try!

  4. Oops! I may have posted to the wrong recipe. The apple pie muffins are the award winner, not morning glory. Sorry

  5. I just made these, and they are delicious! I can see topping them with a crumb or streusel topping, and/or a simple glaze. I used Duncan Hines Wilderness Apple Pie filling, poured the filling in a bowl and cut the slices of apple into smaller pieces. I think cherry pie filling would be delicious, too. I really like the cinnamon in the muffin part. This is a recipe I will use regularly.

  6. Gotta try this! Thank you for sharing!

  7. Apple pie and a muffin combined…I love it!

  10. Is that 1/2 cup of buttermilk or 1and half cup?

  11. Could you use Fresh Apples?

  12. Janet Spoto says:

    Could you use regular milk instead of buttermilk?

  13. They look so awesome. You know I have share this with every one that I know.
