- 1 tablespoon packed light brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

- Fold in the apples and walnuts.
- Divide the batter among the muffin tin cups, filling each about 2/3 full.
- To make the streusel topping, in a small bowl combine all the ingredients and stir until well combined and crumble.
- Sprinkle about 1 tablespoon of the crumb mixture over the top of each muffin.
- Bake until a tester inserted into a muffin comes out clean, about 25 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and let sit in the muffin tin for 10 minutes.
- Turn out onto a wire rack and let cool slightly before serving.
These muffins are really delicious! I made some cinnamon butter to spread on them and the family went nuts for them!
Made for Photo Tag Fall/Winter 07 Nikki...these are easy and so delicious...the streusel topping is what sets this muffin apart from an everyday apple muffin recipe! Thanks!
