These Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake Muffins are full of warm cinnamon and juicy apples, and are topped with the most incredible coffee-cake style topping. 

I recommend buying XL cupcake liners so as much of the topping as possible stays on the muffin while they bake.


  • 1 cup butter or ghee, melted 
  • 1 cup granulated sugar 
  • ½ cup apple sauce 
  • ½ sour cream or greek yogurt 
  • 2 large eggs 
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour of choice 
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon 
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder 
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt 
  • 1 ½ cups peeled & diced (⅛” cubes or finer) apples (approximately 2 medium-sized apples), ½ cup reserved for muffin topping 
  • 2 tablespoons CARAMEL, PUMPKIN SPICE, CINNAMON, or VANILLA Infused Sugar 



Preheat your oven to 350ºF. 

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the butter, sugar, apple sauce, sour cream, and eggs, until combined. 

In a separate bowl, mix together the dry ingredients, then add to the wet ingredients and stir to fully combine, but don’t over-mix. 

Toss the chopped apples with Infused Sugar of choice, then add 1 cup of the cubed apples and mix to disperse evenly. (Reserve the remaining ½ cup of apples for the topping.) Set the mixture aside. 

In a small bowl, combine the topping ingredients, combining with your hands until it becomes the texture of wet sand. 

Scoop the batter evenly into a parchment muffin cup lined muffin tin. Spoon crumble topping on each, gently pressing down so it sticks. 

Bake for 22-24 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes clean.
