One of the best fruits to include in your dessert dishes are apples. Something about an apple’s fresh and distinct flavour blends so nicely with common baking ingredients. It’s why we have apple pies, tarts, cakes, and baked pastry apple dishes. One of our favourite apple based desserts is an apple crumble and in this recipe, we’ve combined the flavour and texture of a crumble with the convenience and deliciousness a muffin ALWAYS offers.

These Apple Crumble Muffins are perfect for storing during the week and snacking, sugar-free, on your way to work in the morning!
