Apple Pie Muffins {Easy Muffin Recipe With Leftover Pie}

 

Simple muffin recipe

I admit I do like to enjoy a muffin with coffee in the morning. Nothing exotic, just a simple muffin recipe will do. Can a gourmet muffin be just a simple muffin recipe? Actually YES! I found a way to make apple muffins and keep it as a simple muffin recipe.

Apple muffins

Before I get into how these apple pie muffins are an easy muffin recipe, let’s talk about muffins in general. If you could name your favorite muffin what would it be? Did you know the number one answer given by most is actually Lemon Poppy Seed?

That surprised me because I thought blueberry muffins would be number one and apple muffins would be number two. Nope, in a food survey, apple muffins rank number 3 as to the favorite muffin recipe. 

The reason is that apple cinnamon muffins are thought of as more seasonal muffins. Where lemon poppy seed is thought of as year-round.  I just found that so interesting about muffin recipes!

So in making a seasonal apple cinnamon muffin recipe came from a pie bakery of all places. The bakery sells these amazing pies at the farmer’s market I like to go to. One Saturday he had these huge muffins.

Turns out, whatever pies he doesn’t sell, he chops up and put them into a muffin batter. The idea was a genius way to use leftover apple pie and make apple pie muffins! This would be such an easy muffin recipe to develop!

Easy muffin recipe

I found on a discounted rack at the grocery store an apple pie. If I buy it, it is a lot of pie for just myself. But chopping that baked apple pie and adding it to a muffin recipe would be perfect. Plus I could bring the apple muffins to work. 

This recipe is perfect, it really is an easy muffin recipe. All you do is just crumble the pie up, yes crust and all. Then put the apple pie put into the muffin batter.

These apple pie muffins bake up nicely. Plus if want you can even put a strudel like topping on these apple muffins too! You could use a box muffin mix and crumble up the pie into that as well. YOu can not get an easier muffin recipe than this! 

These apple cinnamon muffins are just like apple pie but in muffin form. You will be hooked on these apple pie muffins!

    Oh, I feel your pain on redoing old posts. I’ve been working on that for quite awhile now. It seems like there is always something to redo…even if you’ve already redone it once. Ugh. Anyway, these muffins look delish! And I’m so ready for fall all-the-things!

  • That baker is smart guy! I never would have thought of putting extra pie into a muffin. Of course we never have any extra pie, especially apple pie, around here. But, if I do, now I know what to make with it. Thanks!

    I was thinking how nicely buttermilk and brown sugar would have tasted together. That’s awesome combination.

    Using left over pie to make muffins is genius! I love the idea and you can have so many delicious combinations. Will have to try this very soon… now, if only I ever had any left over pie!! haha
