these lightly sweetened, kid-friendly rustic apple muffins aren’t fancy but they are absolutely delicious.  coming together with just 12 ingredients and in about 25 minutes, they’re perfect for the fall season!


  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour (all-purpose and whole wheat pastry flour will also work)
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/21  teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup plain or vanilla siggi’s yogurt (I’ve used both 0% and 4% varieties with success)
  • 34 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 apple, peeled & diced
  • Optional for topping: oats, additional sprinkle of cinnamon


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and grease or line a 12 cup standard muffin pan with paper liners.
  • Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, apple pie spice and salt in a mixing bowl and whisk to combine.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, combine yogurt, sugar, canola oil, eggs and vanilla extract.  Use an electric beater to combine.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir a few times to incorporate. When there are a few flour pockets remaining, fold in apples.
  • Mix until just combined and pears are evenly distributed.
  • Scoop batter into 10 of the 12 prepared muffin cups (filled just below the top rim).
  • If using: sprinkle with oats or additional cinnamon.
  • Bake for 16-20 minutes or until a cake tester or knife inserted in the center comes out clean (or with just a few wet crumbs.
  • Let cool for 5 minutes, then enjoy!
