- First you mix the streusel ingredients in a small bowl.
- Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
- Combine the wet ingredients and the sugar in a small bowl or a batter bowl.
- Add wet ingredients to dry and ingredients and mix until just combined.
- Line a muffin tin with paper cup liners and fill with batter.
- Top with streusel mixture.
- When cooled, glaze with maple glaze.
These whole grain muffins stay so moist from the diced apple!
There is just enough crumb or streusel on top to give it a little added sweetness and crunch and the maple glaze adds a little extra maple flavor.
Variations - you could add some raisins or dried cranberries.
