Servings (change the number to scale):7 muffins
(1 CUP = 250 ML)

Ingredients

dry ingredients for apple muffins

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour, leveled (atta) or 120 grams whole wheat flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon powder (dalchini powder)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 to 2 pinch cinnamon powder for sprinkling

wet ingredients for apple muffins

  • ½ cup warm water or 125 ml water
  • ½ cup powdered or grated organic jaggery or 90 to 100 grams jaggery (you can also add ½ cup sugar)
  • 1 large apple or 2 medium apples or 3 small apples or 150 grams apples, peeled, cored and chopped, about 1 to 1.25 cups chopped apples
  • 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

Instructions

preparation to make apple muffins

  • First line a muffin tray with muffin liners. You can also grease the pan with oil instead of using muffin liners.
  • 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.
  • Seive the dry ingredients in a dry tray or in a plate. Keep aside.
  • 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.

making apple muffins batter

  • 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.
  • Add 1/2 cup powdered jaggery. You can also use 1/2 cup sugar instead of jaggery.
  • Stir very well so that all the jaggery is dissolved.
  • 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.
  • Now add 1/2 tbsp vinegar. You can use apple cider vinegar or the regular white vinegar. Mix again very well.
  • Add the sifted dry ingredients.
  • 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.
  • Then add the chopped apples.
  • Again with light hand movements in one or two round strokes, mix the apples with the rest of the batter.
  • Now spoon the apple muffin batter in the muffin liners till 3/4 of their capacity.
  • 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 apple muffins

  • 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 apple muffins comes out clean. 
  • 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.
  • After 3 to 4 minutes, remove the apple muffins and place them on a wired rack to cool.
  • Serve eggless apple muffins plain as a tea time dessert with milk, tea or coffee.

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. 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.

  2. this recipe has come out well..thank you..my toddler son loved it very much..4 stars

    • nice to know rashmi and thanks for the feedback.

  3. Hello ma’am!
    A big fan of your wonderful blog! My mother and I did try many recipes which we learnt through this and it was all a great hit!

  4. 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 🙂

  5. 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.

  6. 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 🙂

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

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

  14. 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.

  15. Can I grate the apples and use?

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

  16. 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.

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

  18. 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 🙂5 stars

    • 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.

  20. 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.

  21. 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.

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

    • nivedita, yes the same amount.

  35. 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.
