This moist spiced apple muffins recipe is super easy to make and delicious. The perfect breakfast or brunch idea for the fall. Enjoy with coffee on the side
Spiced Apple Muffins
There’s nothing more comforting than waking up to fresh baked muffins and brewed coffee. These delicious Spiced Apple Muffins are made in no time and taste better than your local bakery.
Although here in Miami the weather has yet to change, in other parts of the country people are enjoying the fall breeze and the beautiful leaves changing. Apple orchards are in full bloom and it’s time to shake some bushes and take a nice crisp bite out of a granny smith or a gala.
Personally, I love the taste of these muffins. They’re moist, chunky, and have tons of flavor from the cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and allspice. When you take a bite, you will notice pockets of sweet apple pieces. Spread some soft butter on them and you’ll be in heaven.
Who can resist a muffin and a coffee for breakfast? Enjoy it on a Sunday morning or even on a weekday when you make the batter the night before and bake the next day.
I pair this Spiced Apple Muffins with the newly released New England Coffee Caramel Apple and Pumpkin Spice flavors. They are tasty, with a nice aroma and full of fall flavor.
New England Coffee’s seasonal flavors, Pumpkin Spice and Caramel Apple, are available as bagged ground coffee or in single serve pods so you can enjoy the consistently smooth, delicious flavor of New England Coffee no matter how you brew. You can purchase their new flavors at the New England Coffee Shop.
Remember when I made my delicious Coffee Flan using their new Centennial Reserve Coffee? There I told you about new extraordinary people campaign. Visit their Facebook page for more information.
I hope you can try this delicious Spiced Apple Muffins at home. If you do, please upload a pic on Instagram and tag me @Livingsweetmoments or use the hashtag #LivingSweet. I promise to repost it.

My Dad has an amazing neighbor, Kelly. He had a leg amputated last year and just recently moved back into his home. I am there almost every day but I still worry about him being home alone.
