  • 4 TBLS Unsalted Butter soft
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 container Unsweetened Apple Sauce
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/2 cup All purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 large Egg

Crumb Topping

  • 2 TBLS Unsalted butter melted
  • less than 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 cup All purpose flour
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon


  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and line a muffin tin with muffin liners. 

    2. In a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar for 1 minute. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the unsweetened apple sauce and egg. Turn the mixer on low and break apart the egg yolk. 

    3. In a separate bowl mix together all the dry ingredients. With the mixer on low begin to add in the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Keep mixing a batter if formed. 

    4. Scoop the batter into the lined muffin tins. Fill about 2/3rds full. 

    5. To make the crumb topping, melt the butter. Add the remaining ingredients to the melted butter and mix together until a paste is formed. Spoon even amounts on top of the muffin. 

    6. Place the muffins in the oven and lower the heat to 350 degrees. Bake for 16-18 minutes.
