  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 large Granny Smith apple chopped
  • ¾ cup apple cinnamon jammy bits
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 1 cup apple sauce
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup brown sugar firmly packed
  • 1 cup pecans roughly chopped
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon all purpose flour
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Spray muffin tins with Baker's Joy or line with cupcake papers. Set aside.
  • Place brown sugar, pecans, cinnamon, and flour into a small bowl and stir until combined. Set aside.
  • Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar, and cinnamon in a large bowl until thoroughly combined.
  • Combine sour cream, apple sauce, vegetable oil, and egg in a separate bowl.
  • Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and stir until the batter comes together. Add apple and jammy bits. Gently fold until combined. Do not overmix!
  • Using a large cookie scoop, place your batter into preprepared muffin tins.
  • Top each muffin with 1 Tablespoon of streusel.
  • Bake for 18 minutes.


  • Make sure your egg is at room temperature.
  • Once you add the liquid to the dry ingredients, work quickly! The baking soda and powder start rising immediately.
  • Do not beat the muffin batter! Gently fold in all your ingredients.
  • Don’t continually open the oven door. The muffins will take longer to cook and may not rise as well as they should.
  • Do not skip the apple cinnamon jammy bits! They make a huge difference.
