  • 3 tablespoon olive oil or any neutral flavored oil or melted butter

how to make recipe

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

  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.

  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.

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.

  7. Hello Madam,

    I’m planning to avoid sugar / jaggery for my baby. what is the best way to replace sugar/jaggery in the above mentioned recipe. Is the sweetness of the apple enough for the sweetness of muffins.

    Thanks in advance

    • rohini, the sweetness of the apple is not enough. a few alternatives can be dates puree, raisins puree, figs puree or prunes puree or any sweet berries pureed. another option is to add banana puree or apple sauce. but the apple sauce should be not sweetened with sugar and be naturally sweet. if using dates or raisins or prunes or figs, then just soak them in water for a couple of hours and then puree. dates can also be cooked in some water till it softens and then pureed. if using very soft dates, then no need to puree them. for apple sauce you can check this link – https://www.vegrecipesofindia.com/applesauce-recipe-no-sugar/

  8. Hi..I tried many of ur cakes on stove top…aluminum cake pan..on the bottom on pan need to put sand on stove in a small pan.all cakes came good.now want to check can I do muffins in the same method that is applying or brushing oil in the pan and then put muffins on that as u did in oven.pls suggest

    • thanks san. you can do muffins with the same method. you can use small bowls (vatis) and place the muffin liners in it. this will keep them in shape. place the bowls in a pan. add sand the way you add. then bake.

  9. Can I use eno instead of baking soda?

    • yes you can use eno.

      • Thank you for your response. On unavailability, can I skip vanilla essence and vinegar? Will that hinder the taste of muffins.

        • you can skip vanilla and can add some other aromatic ingredient like 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon powder or cardamom powder. instead of vinegar use 1/2 tbsp lemon juice. some acidity is required for the baking soda to react. you can also use 1 tbsp of buttermilk instead of vinegar. with any ingredient you substitute, the taste and flavor will change.

  10. How can I replace the apples they are not in season

    • you can use pears.

  11. Big fan of your recipes… Please post recipes of pan cakes.
    Thank you.

    • thankyou vilobha have taken your request fr pan cakes recipe, allow us some time to post.

  12. Hey I have tried many recipes from ur blog and they really turn out well but apple muffins didn’t worked for me.. Some apple pieces settled down on base of cupcakes and also cupcakes were not fluffy.. Can you please suggest me what must have went wrong.. I added powdered sugar instead of jaggery

    • komal, thanks for sharing positive feedback on recipes. the fluffiness will not be there if the batter has folded/mixed too much or if the baking soda used is not fresh or not in its shelf life.

  13. this recipe has come out well..thank you..my toddler son loved it very much..

    • nice to know rashmi and thanks for the feedback.

  14. Hello ma’am!

  15. Hi Dear,i have learnt a lot from ur recepies so thank u so much for such a great blog,i want some suggestion ,actually i want to learn baking in delhi can u tell me how to start from where?

    • thanks pooja. i do not know any institute or any person who teaches baking in delhi. if i knew some center or person personally, i would have recommended the same to you. however, for baking, i would suggest to take up the course in a professional institute. one of the institutes i have heard about a lot and very good for baking is le cordon bleu. but they do not have any center in india. i have heard they do offer online courses as well.

      • thnks for the reply u r a very nice person

        • welcome pooja and thanks again 🙂

  16. Why no baking powder in this recipe?

    • reason being baking soda is used hope this help’s you.

      • ok.In most recipes I see both soda and powder.I am a newbie in baking ..;-).
        Have read the purpose of both in cakes but still confused as if there is any thumb rule to use these in recipes?

        • usually baking soda is added to acidic ingredients in the batter. but i use both of them as the baking powder also helps in leavening.

  17. You are my cook book Your recipes are great and easy to follow thank you so much

    • pleased to know this thankyou so much sangeeta 🙂

  18. I made these cup cakes today. It came out perfect in my convection. Thanks for this easy and healthy recipe.. My family loved it.. Wish I could post my muffins pic

  20. How to make muffinswave in microwave

    • i have not tried making muffins in microwave. so unable to help.

  21. I want to know that can i make these muffins in a microwave.

    • you can try. i have never made the. just microwave for 3 minutes. if not cooked completely, then microwave for 30 seconds to 2 minutes. depend upon the microwave oven.

  22. Can u pls post a recipe for lemon loaf cake.

    Krutika

    • krutika, i will try to add the recipe soon.

  23. Hi.Dassanijee I m very much fond of ur recepies. It comes out really very good in taste. Today I made apple muffins for my daughters tiffin it becomes very much soft n soggy from inside what can I do for this?

    • bake for some more minutes. also did you measure the apples while adding. extra amount of apples will make the muffins soggy.

  24. Hi! I am in love with all your recipes!
    I tried this apple muffin recipe last night and by this morning the kids had wiped them out!
    You are my go to “Cook book” ?
    None of your recipes have ever failed and your instructions and pictures are always very clear!
    Keep up the great work and looking forward to many more wonderful dishes!!

    • thanks nimisha for sharing this sweet and positive feedback on recipes. glad to know this.

  25. Hi

    Why is the vinegar used here??what can be the substitute??

    • vinegar is an essential acidic ingredient that helps in making the muffins soft and fluffy by reacting with the baking soda. substitute is lemon or lime juice.

  26. Can I grate the apples and use?

    • aarti, i don’t know how the muffins with grated apple will turn out.

  27. how many days storage….

    • burugupalli, they 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.

  28. Yumm..Yum.. I havent baked ever in my life. Would love to start with this apple muffins.

  29. I just wonder how come ALL your recipes are so perfect ALL the time! 🙂 I have tried so many of your recipes – apple crumble, apple muffins, whole wheat pizza, chocolate chip cookis, pav recipe, bhindi masala etc etc. I follow the exact steps and everytime it turns out perfect. THANKS A LOT! 🙂
    I think yours is the only blog which allows to alternate sugar with jaggery and maida with atta. And this works perfectly for a healthy meal.
    Thanks again from the bottom of my heart 🙂

    • welcome sugandh. thanks for your kind words. all recipes in the blog are tried and tested. may be thats why they turn out good. we prefer sharing healthy recipes, unless there is no option.

  30. The muffins baked as a cake on 7.5″ turned out really nice. Thank you dasssana.

    • welcome aparna. nice to know this.

  31. Hi Dassana I tried it like a cake, it turned out awesome, thank you. If I need it a little sweeter can I do a mix of jaggery and sugar, can you pl. suggest a proportion

    • welcome aparna. you can use equal proportion of both. you can also add few more tbsp of jaggery, if only using jaggery.

  32. Hi! I love your blog and have made quite a few recipes… The banana muffins turned out SO nice! I made a second batch today! But these apple muffins didn’t turn out well for me yesterday.. They were wet n uncooked from inside and got burnt from outside… I had followed your recipe exactly like you have told… What must have gone wrong I don’t know…. 🙁

    • thanks ameya. i think could be a high temperature in the oven. you can try lowering the temperature the next time by 10 to 15 degrees less.

  33. Can we mix the cinnamon in the batter instead? If yes how much please?

    • nivedita, yes the same amount.

  34. Can I bake this as a cake instead of muffins..7.5″ dish

  46. Sounds great with apple and jaggery, and the texture looks great!

    • thanks razana

      • Hii dassana,
        Your recipes are really awesome. I tried apple muffins it tasted superb.I would like to know which fruits i can use instead of apple as i want to use whole wheat atta, olive oil and jaggery to make muffins or cake. Also tell me cinnamon can be used for any fruit?

        • thanks gitanjali. cinnamon goes well with fruits like apples, pumpkin and pear. but then i even tried adding cinnamon with mangoes and lemon, but did not like the final flavor. it more of a individual preference. in this recipe, you can use fruits like pear and peaches.

          • Thanks a lot. I would like to know if i want to make blueberry muffins same recipe will work?

            • i am not sure gitanjali. you will have to give a try.
