  1. These look terrific. – all I need is the Musselman’s Apple Butter. The tip about not over mixing is helpful.

  2. I made these for a 2 yr old’s birthday last year. His mom wanted something amazingly yummy, but also, conceivably healthy.
    After he had eaten 3, he still wanted more. She saved a couple for the rest of the week, and said he could request them again next year.
    Somehow, he remembered. And guess what I’m making again this week? These cupcakes for his 3rd birthday!!!

  3. I want to make full sized carrot cake muffins that taste like moist carrot cake. Would this be the best receipe, or one of your other carrot recipes like classic, ultimate, or pound cake. BTW, I made your apple pie pie oatmeal cookies and they were great!

  4. That looks great!! I’ll try to make them for my daughter for school snack. By the way, how did you make the icing??

    1. It’s a cream cheese frosting! Instructions and ingredients are in the muffin recipe. 🙂

  5. Mine came out terrific ~beautiful. Used Applesauce b/c here in France we don’t easily find Apple Butter either. I am more dreaming of a healthier lifestyle than actually following through at the moment….but I did make these and am hoping i’ll make better decisions starting… now! 😀

  6. I wouldn’t recommend this recipe.
    I’m excellent baker and I did follow the recipe. However, muffins come out very hard, dry outside and wet and uncooked inside ( I baked 18 min).

  7. Hello,

    I´m from Czech Republic and “Apple Butter” isn´t available here. May I know which substitute I could use instead of Apple Butter? Thank you in advance for your response.

  8. My goodness..As someone who has lost 145 pounds the best advice I can give to someone is own up to your own personal responsibility when it comes to figuring out the nutritional value of what you are making if it is that important to you. I don’t expect any blogger to figure anything out for me and neither should anyone else. The empowerment of doing it yourself will benefit you in the future.

    With that being said, I thank you so much for this recipe that totally fits into my healthy lifestyle. My husband takes a 2 hour train ride to work each morning that has us up at 5 am and him out the door by 6:30. As you can imagine, he is starving by the time his work day begins. It’s up to me to send him off with a snack that will keep him satisfied until lunch time. I can tell you first hand these do just that.

    Baked these super moist and tasty muffins up and he is one happy guy. I left the frosting off simply because it’s easier to pack one up with his lunch and he doesn’t have to worry about making a mess. We’re Americans over in The Netherlands and they don’t have apple butter over here so I used applesauce in place without any issues what so ever.

    Loved everything about these and will be using them in my rotation of muffins I bake for my husband. Thank you for taking the time to develop these recipes that people like myself search for and feel good about feeding their family!

    1. I totally agree with your advice! Take your health into your own hands (in even the smallest way) is the step to ultimate health and happiness! And I’m so glad you and your husband like the muffins. 🙂
