Apple Pecan Muffins

I just tried this new recipe I had written down. I changed it a bit and will definitely make them again and again. Muffins are awesome. I just love the pecan crumb topping and they are so moist! -Kristin

3/4 c. plus 2 T. brown sugar
1/4 c. chopped pecans
1/2 t. ground cinnamon
1 c. all-purpose flour
1 c. whole grain pastry flour (or whole wheat flour)
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1/4 c. canola oil
2 eggs
1 c. natural applesauce
1 t. vanilla extract
3/4 c. low fat milk
1 apple, cored, peeled and diced finely (like 1/4 inch pieces)

  • Preheat oven to 400 and coat 18 c. muffin pans with non stick cooking spray.
  • In small bowl, mix together 2 T. brown sugar, cinnamon and pecans and set aside.
  • In separate bowl, whisk flours, baking soda and salt; set aside.
