So a branch on my apple tree snapped and today i noticed some weird bulb like seeds in it. I peeled it back and found this?!?!
Ive googled multiple times with no answers.

This does not look like a disease. It looks like something was living in the tip (we cannot say for sure what) and there may be some insect frass in the branch.
All you can do is prune back to healthy tissue. Monitor the growth of the tree for additional symptoms.
