Apple Cinnamon Muffins

We always have a big bowl of apples on our kitchen counter for everyone to grab a quick and healthy snack.  Unfortunately, the kids are sometimes rough trying to find their favorite apple so they can bruise the rest in their search.  So I had these perfectly good apples with some dents and bruises sitting there being neglected.  I cut the bruised bits off and decided to throw them into these very quick and easy Apple Cinnamon Muffins.  My husband actually "hooted" how good they were when he tried them.  He especially loved the cinnamon sugar topping that gave them a snickerdoodle taste. 

Dry Ingredients:
3 cups all purpose flour
1 Tbs baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Wet Ingredients:
1 cup buttermilk ( or regular milk)
2/3 cup applesauce
2 eggs
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 regular white sugar
1 Tbs cinnamon
1/4 tsp grated nutmeg
2Tbs butter
2 cups finely diced peeled apples (any variety of apple works)

1 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbs regular sugar

Mix all dry ingredients and set aside.  Mix all wet ingredients with wooden spoon and then add the dry ingredients and mix until well incorporated (do not over mix).

Fill muffin pans (either lined with cupcake liners or sprayed with cooking spray/butter). Sprinkle with garnish and bake in 375 degree oven for 17-20 or toothpick comes out clean from center. Makes 18 large muffins.
