Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Apple Cinnamon Muffin with Pecan Crunch Topping!

Marvelous Muffins For Breakfast!

Apple Cinnamon Muffins are a favorite treat at our house! We love them for breakfast, for a snack, and even with an afternoon cup of coffee. Over the years, I have created over 12 varieties of muffins. This one is definitely a family favorite! The streusel topping makes it so delicious, adding another layer of texture and flavor. Your family will fight over who gets the muffin with the most topping- it’s that good!
