Mini Apple Scones Muffins

Tuesday, April 6, 2021
If you're a hurried baker like me but little mini apple scones are perfect any time of the day and easy to make!.

Scones with apples and cinnamon all with the big flavor and texture of scones but without the fuss of rolling and cutting.

Add them to this mini muffin pan for a big scone taste!

Often the larger scones are too much for me and these are perfect with a good cup of tea or coffee.


Not only are these simple these take out the step of rolling, cutting, and still have a tender little bundle of yum!


We love this recipe along with other easy breakfast recipes like our Baked Pancake Casserole or our Simple Baked Bacon and Egg Cupcake Quiche the kids absolutely love both and if you're not in a hurry try our Simple Homemade Pork Breakfast Sausages!

When apple season is upon us, I get right to the farmers market the first chance I get, to buy a huge bag.


I love McIntosh apples or any tart apple that is for baking in season.

Just remember you can use any fruits for these mini scones!
