eggless apple muffins recipe

sharing one more easy eggless muffin recipe with apples. for these muffins, i have used the same recipe as that of my eggless choco chip muffins. however to make these muffins more healthier, i have used organic powdered jaggery instead of sugar. i made these apple muffins with both sugar as well as jaggery on different occasions.

these apple muffins are soft, moist and incredibly aromatic. the apples give a chunky moist taste as well as texture to the muffins. apples and cinnamon always go well together. while baking, your kitchen will pervade with the lovely waft of these apple cinnamon muffins.

serve these eggless apple cinnamon muffins as a dessert snack or a tea time dessert.

  • ½ tablespoon apple cider vinegar or regular white vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract or essence
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil or any neutral flavored oil or melted butter

how to make apple muffins recipe

  1. first line a muffin tray with muffin liners. you can also grease the pan with oil instead of using muffin liners.

making apple muffins batter:

  1. take the dry ingredients in a seive – 1 cup whole wheat flour (levelled), ½ tsp baking soda, 1/4 tsp cinnamon powder and a pinch of salt.
  2. seive the dry ingredients in a dry tray or in a plate. keep aside.
  3. then rinse, peel, core and chop 1 large apple or 2 medium apples, in small cubes or pieces. sprinkle a few drops of lemon juice so that the apples do not get discolored. this is optional and you can skip it. i did not add lemon juice. preheat your oven to 180 degrees celsius.
  4. in a mixing bowl or pan, take 1/2 cup warm water. you can warm the water on stove top or microwave or in a electric heater.
  5. add 1/2 cup powdered jaggery. you can also use 1/2 cup sugar instead of jaggery.
  6. stir very well so that all the jaggery is dissolved.
  7. then add 1/2 tsp vanilla extract or essence. add 3 tbsp olive oil. if using any other oil, use a neutral flavored oil. you can also use melted butter instead of oil. stir and mix very well.
  8. now add 1/2 tbsp vinegar. you can use apple cider vinegar or the regular white vinegar. mix again very well.
  9. add the sifted dry ingredients.
  10. with a wired whisk and with light hand movements, stir and mix the wet and dry ingredients together. tiny lumps are fine. don't over do the mixing. depending on the quality of wheat flour, you can add 1/4 to 1/2 cup water to get a flowing consistency in the batter.
  11. then add the chopped apples.
  12. again with light hand movements in one or two round strokes, mix the apples with the rest of the batter.
  13. now spoon the apple muffin batter in the muffin liners till 3/4 of their capacity.
  14. sprinkle some cinnamon powder from top on all the muffins. if you have used sugar, then you can sprinkle some brown sugar from top.

baking eggless apple muffins:

  1. keep the muffins to bake in the oven at 180 degrees celsius for 25 to 30 minutes. till the tops are browned and a tooth pick inserted in the muffins comes out clean. 

  2. since the temperatures in all the ovens are not the same, do keep a check while baking. in an OTG, keep on the center rack and keep both the top and bottom heating elements on.

  3. after 3 to 4 minutes, remove the muffins and place them on a wired rack to cool.
  4. serve eggless apple muffins plain as a tea time dessert with milk, tea or coffee.

recipe notes

these apple muffins stay good for 3-4 days in the fridge. but due to jaggery muffins can become moist, if kept for more than 1-2 days. so better to have them fresh.

  1. This recipe did not work well. Muffins baked from Upper and mushy from inside. Why is it so? Bcoz baking is not new for me

    • sonal, try to bake for some more minutes. there will be some moisture due to the apples but the batter should bake well.

  2. I just made these and they turned out absolutely delicious. I am new to baking and all my successful attempts have been with your recipes.
    Thank you so much!!

    • Welcome Kunjal. Glad to know this.

  3. Turned out to be great, I have tried your apple muffins, banana cake and wheat nankhatai and they all were fab. First time baking with success. All thanks to you! Best part was I used organic whole wheat flour and organic jaggery in all the recipes with success and that makes it so healthy too.

    • Welcome Garima. Glad to know that baking recipes are turning out good. I try to use whole wheat flour in baking recipes wherever possible to make them more healthy. I also use organic products wherever possible in my kitchen specially flour, sugar, tea, lentils and veggies.

  4. Thanks for this recipe.. This is my first at baking muffins. As soon as they are made will it be a little moist inside. How long it takes to get the porous texture?

    • some moistness is there due to apples in the muffins. otherwise the texture of the muffins is soft and porous. time will vary from oven to oven.

  5. Hi! I usually so not go back and post a comment on the recipe but freely recommends to my friends..however this recipe was SO GOOD that I just had to come back and tell you so…I’ve never had such aromatic muffins even at the best bakery! My daughter loved them so much that she just gobbled them up two at a time – I didn’t even have time for pictures! Thanks a lot! Great recipe..i only tweaked by adding lemon juice in place of vinegar..turned out awesome

    • Welcome Richa. Glad to know that you all liked the recipe so much. Nice to know this.

  6. Thanks for the great recipe.
    Tried once, came out perfect. When tried for second time, muffins got flat in the last (I saw them dome shaped in between cooking) and after taking it out they were all wet from inside. What could be wrong, please help.

    • the muffins have not baked well. thats why they have got sunken or flat. you can keep them again and bake for some more time. for the next time, just bake for more minutes.
