Apple Walnut Crunch Spelt Muffins

These Apple Walnut Crunch Spelt Muffins have no butter, no oil, are high in protein (from the spelt, milk/yogurt, and egg), and are entirely whole grain. Awesome. Especially because they’re completely delicious.


Apple Walnut Crunch Spelt Muffins

(makes 12 muffins)



  • 2 C spelt flour (check out this post for more info on spelt flour)
  • 3/4 C brown sugar
  • 1/3 C finely ground flaxseed
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt


  • 1.5 C apples, chopped into small pieces
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 C skim or 1% milk
  • 1/2 C plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 C walnuts, chopped

Crunch Topping:

  • 1.5 tsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 C walnuts, chopped


Preheat oven to 300 (spelt bakes more quickly than regular flour!).

In two large bowls, separately mix dry and wet ingredients. Add wet ingredients to dry, stirring until mixed. Spoon into a cooking-sprayed or nonstick muffin pan. Top each muffin with a sprinkling of topping mixture. Bake for 30 minutes — fork check to make sure they are done.

    I’d never baked with spelt flour so I didn’t know what to expect. I was thrilled with how good these muffins turned out. The only thing I did differently was add golden raisins which I steeped in white cranberry juice for extra flavor. This is now my “go to” recipe for Apple Walnut muffins. Thanks!

    P.S. Your Banana Spelt Muffins are terrific, too. I added blueberries to them and enjoyed them for breakfast along with some yogurt.

    I loved the flavor but my muffins were doughy the consistency was like a pudding. Can u say why that would happen?
