Apple Crunch Muffins

Here is the recipe for the Apple Crunch Muffins.
This recipe is from the cookbook "30 Day Gourmet's Big Book of Freezer Cooking" by Nanci Slagle and Carol Santee. I love their cookbook and love using freezer cooking to make sure we have meals at the ready.

Apple crunch muffins

1 cup flour

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 cup sugar

2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. cinnamon

2 eggs

1/4 cup canola oil

1/2 cup applesauce

2 cups chopped apples (about 2 medium apples)

Crunch topping:

1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats

1/2 cup flour

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 cup butter

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a muffin pan with cooking spray. Combine first measure of flour, whole wheat flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and first measure of cinnamon in a bowl. Whisk and set aside.

In a second bowl, beat eggs, oil and applesauce. Pour egg mixture into flour mixture and mix until just combined. Fold in apples.

In a separate bowl, combine the oats, second measure of flour, brown sugar, and second measure of cinnamon. Cut the butter into the oat mixture using a fork or pastry knife until coarse crumbs form.

Fill each muffin cup 2/3 full. Top each muffin with oatmeal mixture. Bake for 20 to 23 minutes. Remove muffins from pan and place on a wire rack to cool.
