Pumpkin Apple Muffins with Streusel Topping
These muffins combine all the roadside fruit and vegetable stand sights into the quintessential harvest muffin. While high in satisfaction and flavor, they are low in fat insuring that you don’t begin to look like Charlie Brown’s “Great Pumpkin”.
In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients. In another bowl, combine egg, pumpkin puree and oil, stir into dry ingredients until just moistened. Fold in apples. Fill greased or paper lined muffin cups ¾ full. For topping, combine sugar, flour and cinnamon. Cut butter into sugar mixture until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle each muffin with 1 teaspoon of streusel mixture.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 - 35 minutes or until muffins test done. Cool in pan 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool muffins completely on a wire rack.
