  • 1 ⅓ Cup All-Purpose Flour (Maida)
  • ½ Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ½ Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • A Pinch of Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon Powder
  • ½ Cup Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 Cup Grated Apple
  • 2 Eggs, at room temperature
  • ½ Cup Olive Oil
  • ½ Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Ingredients For Streusel Topping:

  • ½ Cup Rolled Oats
  • 2 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
  • ¼ Cup Cold Butter


Streusel Topping:

  • Combine oats with cold, diced butter and brown sugar. Use your fingers to gently combine the ingredients. The streusel topping should be like a crumbly, chunky mixture. Keep it in the fridge while preparing the batter.

Prepare Muffin Batter

  • Preheat oven at 180-degree celsius. Line muffin tray with paper liners. Grease paper liners with little oil or use a non-stick oil spray.
  • To prepare apple muffins, in a mixing bowl combine eggs, olive oil, grated apple, vanilla, and sugar. Whisk for 5 - 6 minutes.
  • Next, add flour, baking powder, soda, salt, cinnamon powder and combine using a spatula. Make sure no streaks of flour remain in the batter.
  • Pour equal amount of batter in each muffin cup. Fill each muffin cup ¾ with the batter.

Bake Muffins:

  • Sprinkle a tablespoon of oats topping on each muffin.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20 - 25 minutes. Turn off the oven. Insert a toothpick inside the muffin and check for doneness. Transfer muffins over a wire rack to cool down a bit.
  • Serve Apple Muffins warm or store in the fridge in an airtight container for 10 - 15 days.


  • The batter is a little bit lumpy and on a thick side, but that’s the key to soft, moist apple muffins.
  • Do not overmix the muffin batter. Mix the batter until the ingredients are well combined, moistened, and no streaks of flour remain.
  • Try to use apples with little sweetness in them and less tartness like the golden delicious or honey crisp.
  • Always adjust the amount of sugar according to the sweetness of the apples.
  • Stick to brown sugar only as it helps in giving the required moistness to the muffins.
  • Lastly, do not leave the muffins in the oven for too long. Usually, apple muffins don’t take more than 20 minutes to bake. So check muffins with a toothpick and adjust the baking time accordingly.
