When making muffins, you want to gently combine the liquid and flour mixtures just until the flour mixture is moistened and there are no streaks of flour remaining.

Ingredients

all-purpose flour

3 Tbsp

packed brown sugar

3 Tbsp

canola oil

1 Tbsp

ground cinnamon

½ tsp, spice or apple pie spice

all-purpose flour

2 cup(s)

baking powder

2 tsp

ground cinnamon

1 tsp, spice or apple pie spice

baking soda

½ tsp

table salt

¼ tsp

packed brown sugar

½ cup(s)

unsweetened applesauce

½ cup(s)

Plain fat free yogurt

½ cup(s)

canola oil

2 Tbsp

unsalted butter

2 Tbsp, melted

egg(s)

1 large

fresh apple(s)

1 medium, Granny Smith, peeled, cored, and chopped (about 1 cup)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners.
  2. To make the streusel, combine the streusel ingredients in a small bowl until moistened; set aside.
  3. To make the muffins, whisk together the flour, baking powder, apple pie spice, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Whisk together the brown sugar, applesauce, yogurt, oil, melted butter, and egg in a medium bowl. Add the applesauce mixture and apple to the flour mixture; stir just until the flour mixture is moistened.
  4. Fill the muffin cups evenly with the batter. Sprinkle evenly with the streusel, pressing lightly so it adheres. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 15 – 20 minutes. Let cool in the pan on a rack 5 minutes. Remove the muffins from the pan and let cool on a rack about 15 minutes longer. Serve warm. Yields 1 muffin per serving.

Notes

If the batter is mixed more than this, the muffins will be tough.
