Apple Streusel Muffins

In an effort to bring healthy snacks in our home I have (completely against my will) slowed down my baking of cookies….although I think it is completely unfair and down right cruel!  Cookies rock my world!

I did yesterday bake a lovely batch of Apple Muffins.  I did up the amount of apples and slightly reduced the sugar, from the original recipe but overall I tried to keep the flavors true.

Hopefully the girls will welcome this as a delicious treat!

Apple Streusel Muffins

Ingredients:

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 1/2 cup diced green apples (you can easily use diced frozen apples)

2 large eggs

1 cup milk (low fat works)

6 tablespoons melted butter (cooled slightly)

For the streusel:

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

3 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons brown sugar

How to:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Grease or line you muffin pan.  Set aside.

To make streusel topping, put the flour and cinnamon into a bowl.  Cut the butter into small pieces, add to the bowl with flour, and rub it in with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.  Stir in the sugar and set aside.

To make the muffins, sift together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt into a large bowl.  Stir in the sugar.  Add your chopped apples to the flour mixture and stir together.

Lightly beat the eggs in a large bowl, then beat in the milk and melted butter.  Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the beaten liquid ingredients.  Stir gently until just combined, do not overmix.

Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin pan.  Scatter the topping over each muffin.  Bake in your preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes.

Ready for the oven

Smells like apple pie 🙂

Let cool and enjoy!  Great for breakfast or after school snack or whenever I feel lonely and would like a cookie!
