Apple Pie Spice Muffin with Pecan Topping

A wonderful blend of Apple Pie and a Spiced inspired muffin. Add more or less spices and Coconut Sugar depending upon how much spice and sweetness preferred. The Apple Pie Filling makes about two dozen of the Apple Pie Muffins. Or make one recipe using the remaining Apple Pie filling for another recipe! For more Apple Pie Filling consider using a jumbo muffin tin!

The Apple Pie Filling should be made first and placed in the refrigerator while making the muffins. Alternatively, the Apple Pie Filling could be made ahead of time. Serve warm or cold! Consider adding whipped cream or ice cream! Enjoy!

    1. We love them! I reheat for 15 seconds in the microwave. Next time I want to see if I can find a jumbo muffin pan for more apple pie filling. πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

  1. A lovely single serving dessert idea. The pecan topping sounds wonderful, but we don’t often see pecans over here. We do have walnuts, so we’ll give that a try.
