Apple Streusel Muffins

While I was at Jubilee last spring, one of my fellow volunteers (the same baking genius behind Autumn Harvest Bars) began a new tradition of “Muffin Mondays.” It certainly was a sweet way to start the week as we munched our way through the early morning work meeting. Of all the different combinations she tried, this simple recipe remained my favorite. I decided to make it for my final ESL class this week. They turned out a bit aesthetically and height challenged, but just as delicious as I remembered. I might try to tweak this recipe in the future — perhaps reduce the sugar by third, and add some cinnamon to the muffin batter as well. Any excuse to make them again soon!

AppleMuffins

You know you want one…

Apple Streusel Muffins

(1 dozen)

2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt 1 cup sugar

1/2 cup oil

1/2 cup milk (or milk substitute)

2 eggs (or flax eggs)

1 1/4 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups finely chopped apples

Topping

1/3 cup brown sugar

1 tablespoon flour

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1 tablespoon butter or oil

Sift together the dry ingredients and beat together the wet ingredients. Combine, then stir in the apple. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Spoon into muffin tins, mix together the streusel topping, and sprinkle on top. Bake for 20-30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Yum!
