These muffins are a favorite of many and won't stick around long! They are filled with tender apples in a delicious cinnamon muffin and topped with a crispy crumb topping. These will rival any muffins you get at a bakery!
For the muffins:
2 1/2cupsall purpose flour
4medium applescored, peeled and diced (about 3.5-4 cups)
For the topping
Preheat the oven to 350˚F.
In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt together. In a separate bowl mix the melted butter, vanilla, and brown sugar, then mix the buttermilk and egg into the mixture and stir until combined. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just moistened. Fold the apples into the mix.
Spoon the batter into 24 muffins cups, either lined or greased.
In a small bowl, combine the butter and brown sugar. Then mix in the flour, oatmeal and cinnamon working it well until the mixture resembles pea sized crumbs.
Sprinkle mixture over each of the tops of the muffins then bake for 20-25 minutes on the middle rack, or until the top just springs back when touched.
