Caramel Apple Muffins

Prep Time: 20 minutes. Cook time: 15 minutes. Total time: 35 minutes.

Yields: 18 muffins 


1 cup plain Greek yogurt

1 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 

1/2 cup whole wheat flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 1/2 cups diced apples (about 1 1/2 - 2 medium apples)

1 cup caramel bits


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line muffin tins with cupcake liners.

2. Use an apple cutter to slice apples, then peel them. I used one Honeycrisp apple and one Gala. Dice them very fine. Or, cut apples into chunks and place the chunks in a puree blender like I did to get fine pieces.

 3. Beat the first four ingredients together. Add the dry ingredients. Fold in the apple pieces and caramel bits.

4. Pour the batter into the 18 muffin tins. (If you want to make loaves, I believe this recipe will make one large loaf pan or two small.)

5. Bake for about 15 minutes, doing the toothpick test to check doneness.

6. Let cool for 25-30 minutes before unwrapping.
