1Small Applepeeled + grated
For the crumble:
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Line a muffin pan with 6 muffin cases and set aside.
In a large bowl mix together the applesauce, sunflower oil and brown sugar with a wooden spoon.
Gradually add the flour, baking powder, and spices to the bowl, folding the mixture after each addition. Stir in the grated apple.
Divide the muffin mixture between the 6 muffin cases. Prepare the crumble in a small bowl by mixing together the ingredients with your fingers. Divide the crumble mixture evenly on top of the muffins.
Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes until the crumble is slightly golden. Leave to cool slightly before enjoying!
The weight of my grated apple was 70 grams. If you have somewhere in the region of 60-80 grams this is fine, but make sure to adjust the baking time as necessary to account for a slightly wetter/drier batter.
The muffins are best enjoyed warm from the oven, but will keep in a covered container for up to 5 days.
