Apple Muffins w/ Maple Glaze (1 of 1)-4

I have never been a muffin girl, unti lately. I do recall years ago my mom or teaches getting a large pack of muffins from Costco and one was apple with a maple glaze. I remember always begging for that muffin. It was delish.

Well it’s been a few years. And the other day the muffin just popped in my head. Baked goods seem to do that to me. Anyways I left work that day and stopped at Target to pick up some ingredients. Well un benounced to me the Target by my work has a 1/8 of a baking aisle and carries not fresh fruit. So no apples for the muffins I wanted. ๐Ÿ™ I was annoyed. But later that night I happened to go to Trader Joes and got my apples ๐Ÿ™‚ so muffins would be made the next day ! WOO HOO

    1. That would be me writing the recipe at 2am and forgetting about the apples all together! LOL Sorry for the mistake and thanks for letting me know ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I love muffins and these look like some totally awesome muffins! I’m a little leery of the new grocery department in my Target – things aren’t looking so fresh there either. I also remember those Costco muffins, but I don’t eat them anymore because the ingredient list is a mile long and they don’t taste nearly as good as homemade.

  2. A long time ago I made these but forgot to write down the recipe that I had come up with. With your recipe I would double the strussel and pack the bottom of each muffin with 2 T. Of it so you get that crunchy bottom too. These are my favorite muffins. Today my granddaughter and I made blueberry ones. I get to eat a couple before I send them home with her, because first my husband is not a muffin eater…. Ok back… I’m old not dead! And doesn’t like blueberries. Though he will eat 1-2 slices of a quick bread… Dah… Same thing! So I need send this recipe to my computer so I can print it off. Thanks so much for making it available to print!

  3. Thank you for this recipe, I just made them following the recipe exactly and they came out beautifully! They were a little taller than the muffins pictured, and the maple glaze was perfect. So delicious. I love the maple Costco muffins but don’t live anywhere near a Costco so this recipe will perfectly suffice. Good work!
