Looking for a delicious apple muffin recipe for kids to use up all those ripe, red apples from your fall harvest? Check out this tasty recipe! Your kids will eat it up!

Are you looking for a delicious apple muffin recipe for kids? Look no more, try this easy one. Even kids can help you make it and eat it. I am lucky to have a daughter who loves eating apples. My son does eat them too but with his braces, it is a bit of challenge for him. With apple season in full swing, I make sure to stock up on this delicious fruit. But there is so much you can eat, and you don’t want apples to go to waste.

One of my favorite ways to use them is in apple muffins for kids. They are delicious, easy to make and perfect as a school snack. Little one helps with the baking process (and the tasting one too). She enjoys baking and messing around with the ingredients a bit. It is also an excellent way to practice her math skills: measuring, counting, adding, etc. Let’s see how you can make these muffins for kids.
