Apple Chunk Muffins

Apple pie in a muffin.

Sometimes you have to make do with what's around, and today all I could find was a popover pan. It was a little difficult to measure the baking time at first, but after some trial and error I achieved that ideal, crunchy muffin top. It also doesn't hurt to sprinkle sugar on top of the batter before baking. This muffin has some huge flavors because of the massive apple and almond chunks creating a combination between a muffin and an apple pie.

I used this apple muffin recipe from The Boot (originally adapted from Martha Stewart), but halved it, changed the amount of apples, and slightly altered the ingredients:

1/2 c sugar
1 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3 small honeycrisp apples 
1/3 c chopped almonds
1/4 c oats
1 egg
1/2 c milk
1/3 stick butter, softened

Preheat oven to 400ยบ F

-Cut apples into 1/2 in. cubes
-Mix together the sugar, flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon
-Add the apple chunks, the almonds, and the oats, then toss to coat
-Whisk together the eggs, milk, and butter
-Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and carefully fold together until thoroughly incorporated, but be careful not to over-mix the ingredients
-Scoop the batter into greased muffin tins (about 3/4 full, more if you want a larger muffin top!), sprinkle with sugar, and bake for 10-15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean
-Let the muffins cool and enjoy!
