How great do these apple coffee cake jumbo muffins look? They taste even better!

I actually used Musselman’s unsweetened apple sauce for the bater instead of using oil or butter to cut down on the fat. Compare to conventional apple coffee cake muffins I am sure these are a a lot healthier.

As a matter of fact, you can use Musselman’s apple sauce for any type of cake batter by decreasing the amount of oil or butter and substituting it with apple sauce. This way you decrease not only the calories but also the fat. Case in point, these apple coffee cake jumbo muffins. They have many different types of apple sauces. For this one I used the unsweetened apple sauce but they also have an organic apple butter version that I am sure will get my hands on!

I also used a gluten free streusel topping and added some rolled oats to give the muffins some extra fiber. All in all these apple coffee cake jumbo muffins where a super success. My kids devour them. Of course because of the size I just allowed them to have half but making regular size ones would be better for portion control. Which ever size you make they will both be great, just make sure that if you do smaller ones you decrease the amount of baking.

Apple coffee cake jumbo muffins

Miryam's original recipe

Yield: 6 jumbo muffins or 12 regular muffins

Total Time: 1 hour


Streusel topping

  • 1/2 cup brown rice flour
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, you can also use olive oil
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder

Dripping sauce - optional

  • 3 tbsp coconut cream with 1 tbsp maple syrup, or 3 tbsp caramel sauce of choice



Preheat oven to 350 F. Place muffin paper liners on the jumbo muffin pan and set aside.

In a bowl mix eggs, apple sauce, yogurt, vanilla and sugar. Add the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, half the chopped apples and combine. With a large cookie scoop fill each muffin liner 3/4 of the way.

In another bowl combing strudel topping plus the remainder of the chopped apples and place over the muffin batter. Bake for about 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. I baked my muffins for 40 minutes. If you choose to do smaller muffins bake for 20-25 minutes only. Remove the muffins from the baking pan and cool on a wire rack.

You can drizzle some caramel sauce, the coconut milk mixture or leave the muffins as is.
