apple crisp muffins with cinnamon drizzle

Apple Crisp Muffins

My favorite apple dessert is apple crisp and I just figured out how to eat it for breakfast!

It’s apple season here in Atlantic Canada. These muffins are over sized but could easily be made in a regular muffin tin. You’ll have to adjust the cook time down to between 15 and 20 minutes. I like the jumbo size cause that way I can feel like I’m only having one muffin. I live in denial!

I had a wonderful conversation tonight with one of my closest friends. A conversation that I should have had fifteen years ago. An insignificant moment in time festered into an epic event because I struggle with conflict. Or the possibility of it. Turns out, it was nothing. Had I the confidence in our friendship, all those years ago, to ask the question, tonight would never have happened. That would’ve been a loss.

I love how things work out the way they’re supposed to…

1 cup butter, melted

Sift together:

2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

Mix well
Crumble over the top of the filled muffins and bake for 25 minutes


½ cup icing sugar
¼ teaspoon cinnamon

These muffins keep well for several days or can be frozen up to 6 months.

THE LOVE: It’s always a good idea to do the tooth-pick check just in case your oven does not bake at the same speed as mine.
