Apple Spice Muffins

I made these yummy apple spice muffins in honor of the beginning of fall, my favorite season. The warm cinnamon and apple flavors make me want to snuggle up on the couch and watch the leaves fall from the trees. I have tried several different apple muffin recipes and this one wins! They are deliciously moist with just the right amount of a buttery cinnamon topping. 


1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt 
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 green apple
1/2 cup milk
3 tablespoons canola oil
3 tablespoons apple sauce
1 egg

2 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon melted butter
2 tablespoons oats
2 tablespooon flour

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In your electric mixer combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon. 
2. In a different bowl combine milk, oil, apple sauce, and egg.
3. Peel and chop your apple into smallish pieces.  Over medium heat, melt your 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon brown sugar together. Stir in chopped apple and cook for about 4 minutes.
4. Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Add cooked apples leaving the butter and brown sugar liquid in your saucepan. Turn off heat.
5. For your crumble topping: Add 2 tablespoons oats, 2 tablespoons flour,  and 1 tablespoon brown sugar into your butter and brown sugar liquid left over from cooking your apple. Stir together until small crumbly clumps form.
6. Sprinkle on top of your muffins and cook for about 20-25 minutes or until your crumble topping turns golden brown.
