Apple Spice Muffins

Ummm, do I have a new favorite muffin?? Maybe. I ate 3 the night I made them. They lasted a total of 24 hours in my house. They were a hit with everyone who tasted them. They remind me of what would happen if a spiced cupcake met apple pie.... yummmmmmmm........ that good :)

2 cups flour (I used 1 cup all purpose, 1 cup whole wheat)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup coconut crystals or brown sugar
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup apple sauce
1/2 cup butter, melted
1.5 tsp vanilla
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup chopped apple
1/2 cup shredded apple
*** I used Granny Smith apples***

1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 TBSP flour
1/4 cup brown sugar or raw coconut crytals
1 TBSP butter

Preheat your oven to 375. In a large mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients and sift. Then add your eggs, maple syrup, melted butter, apple sauce, and vanilla and mix well until all ingredients are blended. Lastly, add your apple, stirring well. Use lined cupcake tins and pop them in the oven. After 5 minutes in the oven, open the oven door and scoop the crumb some crumb topping on each muffin, close and let it cook for the remaining time. The WHOLE cooking time is 18- 20 minutes- they are done when you can insert a toothpick and it comes out clean.

Your muffins sound so tasty and they look absolutely lovely. I bet that crumb topping really took them to the top. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog and I'd like to invite you to stop by and link your muffins up. http://sweet-as-sugar-cookies.blogspot.com/2011/04/sweets-for-saturday-11.html
