Pumpkin Apple Streusel Mini Muffins

Let me describe them this way:

"Muffins so good even Crew will eat them."Many of you know that I am not a baker. At all. Nevertheless, after sampling a few dozen of these mini-muffins on a recent visit to my friend Kerrin's house, I rallied my courage and bought ingredients for the proffered recipe. Only 48 cents for baking soda? Who knew? I am pleased (and a little shocked) to report that they turned out just as good as Kerrin's.


Wet Mix:
1 cup pumpkin (or 1 cup pureed canned yams!)
2 eggs
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 apple sauce

Dry Mix:
2.5 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

Final Add-in
2 cups peeled and chopped apples

Streusel Topping:
2 tsp flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Cut in 4 Tbs cold butter (I grated it with a cheese grater!)

Mix dry mixture and wet mixture separately. Mix together just until wet. Stir in apples. Spoon batter into greased mini-muffin cups, fill 3/4 full. Sprinkle streusel topping over batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Makes approximately 48 mini-muffins (48 calories each).

*I had them fresh right out of the oven. I also had them later that evening after sitting under plastic wrap all day. They were delicious fresh out of the oven. They were even more delicious, more moist later...

Thank you Megan!! This is the second or third time we have made these and we LOVE them. Too bad I can't stop eating them either. Oh well,
