Apple (Chocolate Chip) Muffins

Apple chocolate chip muffin

This is one more of my attempt to bake with apples. Instead of making the usual Apple pie, I wanted to make something that would make my boys happy. When I was talking to one of my dear friend, she mentioned that she has a very good recipe for Apple cake. She mailed the recipe to me right away and here I am couple of weeks later, made her recipe and awfully happy with it. Thanks Marybeth for the awesome recipe.

I made half the muffins with just the apples and to the other half I added the chocolate chips, only to please my dear husband. It was job well accomplished. He loved the muffins with the chocolate chips. The recipe also called for nuts, which I did not add.

Ingredients- (Makes about 18 large or 36 mini muffins)

  • Apples (any cooking variety) – 3 cups (chopped)
  • All purpose flour – 2 cups
  • Vegetable Oil – 1cup
  • Eggs – 2
  • Sugar – 1 cup
  • Baking soda – 1 tsp
  • Cinnamon – 2 tsp
  • Salt – ½ tsp
  • Vanilla – 2 tsp
  • Chocolate chip – 1 cup (optional)
  • Nuts (walnuts, pecans or any nut of your choice) – ½ cup (optional)
Procedure –
  • Preheat the oven to 325 F.
  • Sift the flour with baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Keep aside.
  • In another bowl, beat the eggs well and then add the sugar, vegetable oil and the vanilla to it. Mix well.
  • Now add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and stir until well blended. 
  • Fold in the chopped apples, chocolate chips and nuts. In my case, I added the apples first, then filled half of my muffin pans and then added about ½ cup of chocolate chip to the remaining batter and then filled the remaining molds.

  • Check if done by inserting a tooth pick to the center of the muffins. If the tooth pick comes out clean, then the muffins are done.
