I kind of just want to leave it to the pictures on this one. I could describe it to you – but I think the pictures will say more than I ever could. This Peanut Butter Caramel Apple Muffin Recipe is simply amazing. The best muffin I’ve ever made. So good, you may never need cupcakes or candy again. And, healthier!

Peanut Butter Caramel Apple Muffin Recipe
  • 1/2 Cup Natural Peanut Butter (so much better for baking!)
  • 1/4 Cup Applesauce
  • 1/4 Cup Yogurt
  • 2 Egg Whites
  • 1/4 Cup Honey
  • 1/2 Cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Wheat Flour
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Apple
  • 1/2 Lemon
  • 1 Cup Caramel Sauce (I used Smuckers from a jar, you can easily make some, too!)
  • Peanuts (for garnish)
1. Mix and sift dry ingredients in small bowl
2. Mix together the wet ingredients, leaving the apple
3. Chop apple into small pieces (I did little slivers) and squeeze 1/2 a lemon over them
4. Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until smooth (it is not runny like a cake batter, it’s supposed to be more dense)
5. Mix in apple pieces
6. Spray muffin pan and fill halfway, making a little nest as much as possible (don’t stress)
7. Fill each nest with a small dollop of caramel and top with more muffin mix (just enough to cover caramel)
8. Bake for 20-25 minutes at 325 degrees
9. Drizzle with Burnt Butter Glaze, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar or peanuts or just eat plain!
