since i don't actually 'know' the muffin man

They are the perfect portable snack. They are diverse and can be very good for you if you pick the right recipe. They are also super quick and easy but still beautiful. MUFFINS!
(and the perfect use for the leftover crumble topping from the mango crisp recipe found here)
And yes, those "might" be fall themed muffin wrappers- that's all I had :)

Apple Cinnamon Streusel Muffins
1 cup white whole wheat flour
1/2 cup unbleached wheat flour
3/4 cup white sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup veg oil
1/2 cup applesauce
1/4 cup milk
1 egg
leftover crumble topping (12 tablespoons would be PLENTY)

*mix wet ingredients (besides crumble topping)
*mix dry ingredients (besides crumble topping)
*mix wet and dry together :) just until combined
*pour into lined muffin cups and sprinkle about a tablespoon of crumble over each
*bake in preheated oven on 375 degrees for 20(ish) minutes

*Note- these got just a little dry but were fine with butter. i find that sometimes this happens with whole wheat flour, but you can try watching for doneness and pulling them out a minute or two sooner


  1. I want to make muffins! Where do you get your crumble? And is crumble something a person can make without effort? It seems I have all the other ingredients.

  2. the crumble is my "standard" recipe like a crisp topping- basically just butter, brown sugar and oats. THINK it is listed here in the mango crisp recipe.....

  3. 1 cup quick cooking oats
    1 cup brown sugar
    1/2 cup whole wheat flour (or less)
    1 small package chopped pecans- or not (it's fine without)
    1 stick butter

  4. My peoples loved these! I used a super heaping half cup of berry applesauce and they weren't dry at all. Now what to make with all this crumble =)

  5. yay!! yes that is a massive recipe for the crumble but it will keep for a very very very long time!

  6. Holy muffins those look delicious!!!!! Anything with a crumb topping is a good thing in my book! Great blog! :)
