The end of summer…. I’m always a little sad to see it go. Lighter schedules, vacations, ball games, sunshine, and tank-tops. But I can’t lie, fall holds the biggest spot in my heart. Routines and schedules, visits to the pumpkin patch, post-season baseball, cooler air, open windows, and sweaters!! But most importantly……the food! Fall flavors can’t be beaten.
Now that fall is knocking on our door, and the A/C and I are celebrating with the windows open a few times already, I don’t dread turning on the oven as much. If you follow me on Instagram Stories, you may have seen me baking up these little gems. Apple Spice Muffins with streusel topping and vanilla glaze are full of warm fall flavors, and packed with protein! I love sneaking vegetables into desserts and treats. Then, watching my family’s reaction when I tell them what was in muffins they all devoured.
I think you all know how much I love Bush’s Beans, right? Well, I was on BushBeans.com recently where I saw a few cake recipes that included Baked Beans. THAT definitely piqued my interest!! I’ve made black bean brownies…..why not Apple Spice Muffins with baked beans? While baked beans in a muffin might seem a little odd, it totally works, I promise.
One bite of this moist, spicy muffin and the “ewww” factor will disappear quickly! Honey Baked Beans mingle perfectly with apples and spices.
How to make Apple Spice Muffins with Baked Beans
Apple Spice Muffins are a breeze to whip up.
- First, you need 1 can of Bush’s Baked Beans with Honey, or Country Style Baked Beans (remove bacon pieces). Process in food processor or blender until pureed.
- Add 3/4 of a cup pureed beans to a boxed spice cake mix, along with 3 eggs and applesauce and the fall flavors really begin to shine. Mix by hand.
- Divide batter into muffin tins and bake for about 13 minutes (full recipe below)
That’s it! They are great for breakfast or a snack.

If you want to kick the muffins up a notch, add a streusel topping before baking, then drizzle with glaze after they cool. Enjoy watching their jaws hit the floor when you tell them there are baked beans in the Apple Spice Muffins they can’t stop eating. 😉
Do yourself a favor and bake some bean muffins……don’t even worry about sharing them with your family 😉 I won’t tell.
