Apple Muffins

These were very flavorful. I used my food chopper to mince the apples after they were peeled.

12 muffins

1 cup brown sugar, divided
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup canola oil
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup peeled chopped apple (firm apples, such as Granny Smith work best)
1 teaspoon cinnamon, divided

  1. Spray muffin tins with non stick spray. Set aside.
  2. Combine 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon in a small bowl. Set aside.
  3. Whisk together flour, baking soda, salt and remaining 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Set aside.
  4. Blend remaining 3/4 cup brown sugar, buttermilk, oil, egg and vanilla in a large bowl.
  5. Add dry ingredients, mixing just until barely blended.
  6. Add apples and stir to combine.
  7. Divide batter into 12 miffin tins.
  8. Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon mixture evenly over top of muffins.
  9. Bake in preheated 325F degree oven for about 20 minutes
