Muffin Mondays - Apple Streusel Muffins

Like last week's muffin, this morning's muffin comes to us from Muffins & More by Jean Pare. Enjoy!

Apple Streusel Muffins

And our version:

Apple Streusel Muffins
Makes 12 muffins

1.5 c. whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 c. cane sugar
1 T. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
2 eggs
1/2 c. milk
1/4 c. butter, melted
1 medium apple, diced (peel on)

2 T. Rapidura sugar
2 T. Cane sugar
1/4 c. butter softened

1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees and grease muffin tin with coconut oil.

2. In a small bowl, mix together topping ingredients, set aside.

3. In a medium bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

4. In a small bowl, stir together egg, milk, and butter; stir in chopped apple.

5. Add wet mixture to dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened (don't over mix your muffin batter!).

6. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full, spoon on topping , and bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes.

Here's what our muffins looked like when they came out of the oven...

Hmm. Not too pretty. It seems our adjustments to the topping ingredients were a little off -- the topping wasn't supposed to run off the muffins and spill over onto the muffin tin. What to do?

We used a toothpick to flip the streusel back onto the muffins...

And they wound up looking like this...

Not the prettiest muffins we've ever made, but according to our panel of judges, this recipe is a keeper!

Truly, these are delicious! However, the next time we make these (and we will), we'll simply sprinkle a tiny bit of sugar on top and skip the streusel. Our little streusel mishap served as a great learning opportunity for my daughter -- that recipes (or our attempts to make substitutions) don't always turn out. As always, let us know if you give them a try!

Bon Appetit!

This is the 3rd installment in what will be, Lord willing, our year-long muffin adventure: Muffin Mondays! 52 Mondays, 52 Muffins. (There are 48 more to come, stay tuned...)



  1. That's funny! I just baked Cinnamon Streusel muffins last night! Those apple ones sound good too! Have a happy day!

  2. Those look so good especially with that streusel on top. Fantastic! I have a new linky on my blog called "Sweets for a Saturday" and I'd like to invite you to stop by this weekend and link this up.

  6. Thanks for all the sweet comments! These muffins were very good even though we miscalculated when converting our topping ingredients. :) Always learning!

    JUST made these this morning. I didn't see the streusel mishaps until after mine were in the oven. They did the same thing. LOL Next time I make them I'll add cinnamon to the streusel and push it into the muffin middles. ;-)
    Thanks for the great recipes.

    1. Thanks, Misti! LOL indeed. :) Enjoy!
