EASY APPLE CINNAMON MUFFINS
EASY APPLE CINNAMON MUFFINS MUFFINS: 1 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 cup whole wheat flour 1/2 cup granulated white sugar 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 teaspoons baking powder 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon 1/3 cup vegetable or canola oil 1 large egg 1/3 cup milk 2 medium apples, peeled, cored and chopped TOPPING: 1/4 cup granulated white sugar 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour 2 Tablespoons butter, softened 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin or line with paper muffin liners. In a medium bowl whisk together dry ingredients. Add oil, egg and milk and stir just until combined. Fold in apples. Divide batter between the 12 muffin cups. In a small bowl, mix topping ingredients, blending together with a pastry cutter or fork. Sprinkle over unbaked muffins. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center of muffin comes out clean. TIPS: *To lighten up the recipe a bit, fill the 1/3 cup measuring cup with 1/2 applesauce and 1/2 oil. The muffins will turn out just as moist. *This recipe may also be made with white whole wheat flour in place of traditional whole wheat flour.
