Apple Cinnamon Muffins

anyone know how to get those stupid white corners off?
     These apple muffins with a crumbly cinnamon sugar topping will make your house smell so good. A perfect breakfast on a crisp, Fall morning. I enjoyed mine with my favorite Black Magic coffee from our local coffee shop. They are moist and cinnamony (That's a word, right? Well, it should be) and irresistible. I kept thinking that they remind me of something, but I can't quite put my finger on it.
     I actually used both whole wheat and white flour this time around. If you prefer to use all whole wheat, just use 1/2 cup minus 1Tbl instead of 1/2 cup white.

2/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup white flour
1-1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar
2 apples, finely chopped
1/2 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
4 Tbl butter, melted
4 Tbl brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

  • Place muffin cups in pan. 
  • Combine flours, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
  • Stir in apples and sugar.
  • Place milk, eggs, and butter in a separate bowl and mix. 
  • Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and gently stir until just combined.
  • Divide batter evenly into muffin cups. 
  • To make the topping, mix brown sugar and cinnamon together. Sprinkle over the muffins.
  • Bake in 400* for 20-25 minutes or until risen and golden.
