Apple Streusel Muffins
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup oat flour (if you don't have, just use all-purpose flour)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup applesauce
1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cups chopped apples (I used 1 large and 1 medium golden delicious apples)
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 Tbsp butter
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a muffin pan with paper liners.
In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.
In a large bowl, beat together butter, sugar and eggs until smooth. Add applesauce; stir to combine. Mix in vanilla. Stir in apples, and gradually blend in the flour mixture. Spoon the mixture into the prepared muffin pan. The batter will be thick.
In a small bowl, mix brown sugar, flour and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture is like coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over tops of mixture in muffin pan.
Bake 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Allow to sit 5 minutes before removing muffins from pan. Cool on a wire rack.
