Recipe by Sweet Diva MJ
Delicious! This is a favorite muffin recipe - I am required to make them at least once every fall. I substitute freshly ground whole grain flour for the all-purpose. **PLEASE NOTE**. If you substitute store-bought wheat flour for the all-purpose, you do not need to add the additional amount of flour - just use the same amount as all-purpose. My picture is of the whole grain version.
- 2 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour or 3 cups freshly ground soft wheat flour or 3 cups oat flour
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1 cup canned pumpkin
- 1⁄2 cup vegetable oil (or 1/4 cup canola oil plus 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce)
- 2 cups apples, finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 4 tablespoons butter
