Microwave Apple Cinnamon Muffins are moist, fluffy and delicious, with a crisp apple flavor offset by rich cinnamon.   

Apple Cinnamon Muffins combine the crisp, fresh flavor of fresh apples with the aromatic, delicious tang of cinnamon. Mixed together, they taste a little bit like the holidays, a little bit like fall, and a lot like something that is about to be completely devoured.

SERVE WITH

Have your muffin with a delicious cup of herbal tea or a latte on your way out the door, or you can even have one as a side for a larger breakfast. If you’re feeling super fancy, go for the full continental breakfast and have a muffin with scrambled eggs, bacon, coffee, and some hash browns. 

SAVE SOME FOR LATER

As long as you keep them wrapped in something airtight, like a bag or tupperware, your muffins will be fine at room temperature for about 3 days. After that, they will get pretty stale, so you’ll want to enjoy them while they’re still relatively fresh.

COST FACTOR

$: So muffins need some pretty universal ingredients to start with, but those ingredients will keep well and you can use them for all future muffin making endeavors. This recipe is extremely cost effective if you get the non perishable ingredients in bulk.    

 

MICROWAVE TABLE

  • 1,000 watts or higher: Higher wattage, lower cook time. Our microwave is about 1,250 watts, but if you have one with about 1,000 watts you will want to cook your muffins for about 1:48 minutes.
  • 700 watts: Microwaves under about 900 don’t heat things evenly or consistently, so don’t go anywhere while you’re cooking. Bake your muffins for about 2:35 minutes.
