Apple Pumpkin Crumble Muffins

These are a such hit on a chilly autumn morning for any pumpkin fan. The streussel topping and tender apple pieces throughout make this moist muffin a perfect accompaniment to a warm cup of tea or coffee.   I made a few changes to the original recipe and substituted spelt flour for white flour and raw turbinado sugar for white sugar.  I also used coconut oil since it’s the healthiest oil for baking. I never use pumpkin from the can but rather bake a big one, run it through a food processor and freeze cups of it for future recipes.

1.  In a bowl, combine the first five ingredients. 

2.In another bowl, combine the eggs, pumpkin and oil and then stir into dry ingredients until moistened.

3. Fold in apples.

4. Filled paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full.
