Apple Cinnamon Muffins

1 ½ cups chopped apple
1 ½ teaspoon lemon juice
1 cup sour cream
½ cup butter, melted and cooled
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 ¼ teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
Cinnamon Chips
1/3 cup sugar
4 tablespoons flour or graham cracker crumbs
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
2 ½ tablespoons cold butter diced
1.     Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2.    Peel and chop apples (I used granny smith) and then coat with lemon juice.  Set aside. 
3.    In a large bowl, mix sour cream, cooled butter, and sugar until fluffy.  Add eggs and vanilla and mix again.
4.    In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
5.    Slowly add the dry ingredients to the sugar mixture, do not overmix.
6.   Stir in apples and cinnamon chips. (If you don’t have cinnamon chips you can use 2 teaspoons cinnamon.)
7.    Spoon into muffin liners.
8.   Topping: Mix sugar, flour/graham cracker crumbs, cinnamon and butter until it has reached a crumble consistency. 
9.   Top muffins and bake for 15-18 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

    Yum! Looks so good. Love the idea of the graham cracker crumbs in the topping! I use graham cracker crumbs in my apple crisp topping and love it.

    These look delicious! I want to make these. I'm been trying to find cinnamon chips in my area. Did you buy them at a regular grocery store or online?

    I’ve made quite a few of your recipes (all delicious, btw) and I just made these last night. They had a good overall taste, but next time I will add 2 or 3x more apple. Thanks for all the great recipes! You are an inspiration!

    They were so yummy!! Did you find that the bottom of the cupcake wrapper was very “wet”? I’m sure it was just because of the apples, but I don’t know if there was a way to fix this!
