Apple Cinnamon and Walnut Muffins

I came across this delicious recipe for Apple Cinnamon and Walnut Muffins over at AK Mom’s blog, At Home in Alaska and couldn’t resist the urge to try her delightful muffins! These muffins are a breeze to make, full of flavour and texture and loaded with chunks of apple and walnuts, which keeps them nice and moist. They’re good on the go or at home with that early cup of coffee/tea and they stay moist for days...if you have any left!! Thanks AK Mom, this is definitely a keeper!

Apple Cinnamon and Walnut Muffins

Makes 12 muffins (I ended up with 18)

2 cups all-purpose flour
¾ cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
¾ cup milk
2 eggs, beaten
⅓ cup butter, melted
1 cup chopped apples
½ cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 12-cup muffin tin, or line with paper baking liners. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and nutmeg. In a small bowl, beat milk, eggs and butter until well blended. Stir into flour mixture just until blended. Fold in apples and walnuts. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups or liners, filling three-fourths full. Bake 25 - 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centres comes out clean. Cool in pan for 2 minutes. Remove to wire rack.

I love the look of these! Apple and cinnamon muffins are one of my favourites and I'm loving the addition of nutmeg. Bet they smell gorgeous when they're cooking.

(I've just put a recipe up for some red velvet muffins - thought you might like to have a look so come and see if you get the chance!)

I'm so very glad that you tried this recipe and enjoyed the results, Maria!! :)
They are very tasty muffins and definitely disappear pretty quickly - because they get gobbled up before you know it. :)

Thanks for posting this Maria, I made some this weekend and they were delicious! I didn't have walnuts to hand and ended up sprinkling some brown sugar on top - so a couple variations.
