    X 1 cup milk (1% used)
    X 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
    X 1/2 cup apple sauce
    X 2 eggs
    X 3 1/2 tsp baking powder
    X 1/2 tsp salt
    X 1/8 tsp baking soda
    X 4 cups apples, peeled, cored and chopped
    X 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
    X 2 tbsp all purpose flour
    X 4 tbsp oats
    X 3 tsp cinnamon
    X 2 tsp nutmeg
    X 2 tbsp margarine


The smaller the diced apples the better, bigger chunks makes the muffins fall apart easier, esp. when taking out of the tins.

Original recipe called for 1/4 c. plain greek yogurt, 1/4 c. apple butter, and whole wheat flour. I didnt have any of this so I used 1/2 c. applesauce and regular flour. Probably a little moister than it should have been, but still good.


1. Start by preheating your oven to 425F. Spray a 12 cup muffin pan with cooking spray.
2. Mix together your topping ingredients (Last 6 ingredients listed)
3. Make sure the butter is cold. Cut it into the mix with a pastry cutter until it resembles coarse crumbs, then set aside.
4. Mix the first four ingredients together in a bowl.
5. In a separate bowl, mix in the rest of your ingredients minus the apples. Youre really going to want to mix this until its foamy. That way itll incorporate more air into the mixture, making the result fluffier.
6. Mix wet and dry ingredients until JUST combined.
7. Then fold in your apples.
8. Scoop the batter into the cups. The muffin wells should be filled to the top as these dont bake out, they just rise.
9. Top with your streusel
10. Bake for 5 minutes at 425. Then lower your oven to 375 and bake for another 15 or so minutes. This technique helps the muffins to rise.
