apple muffins

Three times we've picked apples this fall, and there's not a decent photo to show for it. How did that happen? But, for our efforts, I do have this tasty muffin recipe to share.

Apple Muffins

1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
3 tsp. baking powder
1 cup plain yogurt
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 egg
1/2 cup applesauce
1 apple, peeled and diced


1/4 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp. flour
3 Tbsp. oats
pinch of salt
1-2 Tbsp. butter, softened

In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, combine wet ingredients, mixing well. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry, stirring until just mixed. Fold in diced apple. In a small bowl, make the topping by mixing the dry ingredients and cutting in the butter until the mixture is coarse crumbles. Pour the batter into greased muffin tins. Sprinkle with topping and bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes.

The rest of the apples have been turned into jars of applesauce and have made for perfect snacks for autumn walks in the woods.
