Apple Muffins made with Granny Smith apples, applesauce, and topped with a cinnamon nutmeg streusel. These taste like Fall in a muffin!


2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup white sugar
4 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 eggs
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup diced Granny smith apples + 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon + 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg + 1/2 teaspoon flour

For the Streusel
5 tablespoons quick oats
4 tablespoons salted butter, softened
4 tablespoons dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg


1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Mix the diced apples with the 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg and 1/2 teaspoon of flour. Make the streusel by combing the softened butter, sugars, quick oats, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Set the apples and the streusel aside while you make the muffin batter.

2. Combine the flour, white sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and baking soda in a large bowl. In a separate bowl combine the wet ingredients: applesauce, oil, and eggs. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir to combine. Last, add in the diced apples and gently stir to blend the apples throughout the batter.

3. Prepare your muffin tin by either using liners or by spraying with cooking spray. Add the batter to the muffin tin, you’ll be able to get 12 large muffins or about 14 if you want a smaller muffin. Top with the streusel and bake for 30 minutes.
