This is a GREAT recipe that I will use many, many times for years to come. I love recipes that replace oil with applesauce without losing moisture or flavor, and this is definitely one of those. If you don't want ANY sugar in them, leave off the streusel topping, but I was feeling naughty... and with only 2 Tbsp of brown sugar in the entire recipe, SO worth it!
1 1/2 cup white, whole wheat flour
3/4 cup Stevia in the Raw
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce (I use organic)
2 eggs lightly beaten
1/2 cup milk (I used buttermilk – YUM!)
4 apples – peeled, cored and chopped
1 cup uncooked regular oats
2 Tablespoons light brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 Tablespoon butter, melted
Preheat oven to 375. Spray a 12 cup muffin pan or liners with baking spray. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, Stevia, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon. In a separate bowl, mix applesauce, egg and milk. Stir the wet mixture into the flour mixture by hand until just blended. Fold in the apples. Spoon the dough into the prepared muffin cups.
In a small bowl, mix the oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and melted butter. Spread evenly over the muffin batter. Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.
