Simple Apple Muffins Recipe

Ingredients

 2 eggs
 ⅔ cup sugar
 1 cup vegetable oil or grape seed oil (OR - ½ cup oil and ½ cup yogurt - if using this option, increase the sugar by 2 Tbl - OR DO - ¾ cup oil and ¼ cup buttermilk)
 1 & ½ tsp vanilla
 2 cups white flour
 ½ + ⅛ tsp salt
 ½ + ⅛ tsp baking soda
 2 cups apples, peeled and chopped
 *Optional* ⅔ cup chopped pecans
CARAMEL TOPPING (optional):
 ½ cup butter
 ¼ cup milk
 1 cup brown sugar
 pinch of salt

Directions

1

Peel and chop 3 cups of apples, and set aside. (I used half green tart apples and half red sweet apples.)

2

Preheat oven to 350, and line or grease 16-18 muffin tins.

3

In a large bowl, beat the eggs until foamy, gradually adding the sugar.

4

Blend in the oil and vanilla.

5

Add in flour, salt, and baking soda and stir until just combined and no longer lumpy.

6

Gently fold in the apples (and pecans, if using)

7

Pour into 16-18 muffins tins.

8

Bake for 18-20 minutes - depending upon your oven. The muffins are done when a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean, and the tops do not look very wet.

9

Cool on wire racks or on plates.

10

Enjoy!

TO MAKE OPTIONAL CARAMEL TOPPING:
11

In a small pan, combine all topping ingredients.

12

Bring to a boil over medium heat, and allow it to boil for 3 minutes - stirring constantly to avoid burning the caramel.

13

Drizzle the warm sauce over the muffins.

14

Store in sealed container in the fridge for up to a week.

15

Reheat on stove top or in microwave.
