My granddaughter came for a visit and I made these muffins for us. We loved them! I used Macintosh apples, which were more on the tart side. Made a delicious breakfast for us. Loved the topping, making them extra special!

Love these muffins so much that I made them all winter. I used extra ingredients to make more topping cause the more the better is my motto.

Wow! are these good. I would give them more stars if I could. I followed the instructions as directed, even coarse-grating the apples. The only difference was that I made twelve of them instead of six, but only one recipe. I thought that because hubby and I are trying to be healthier eaters, I would not make a double muffin (smile), but when cooled a tad, I proceeded to eat two of them, so I could have made double ones. Oh, well! They are delicious and I will make them again, maybe in a few days. My house smelled like a wonderful bakery when I took them out of the oven. Wow! again.

I usually make several muffins on Sunday's for the week, and then freeze some for later on. I grated the apples and took liberty in adding chopped walnuts to the topping, coming out exceptionally well. I loved that they were so moist and didn't crumble as I bit into it. This will be one of the several new muffins I will make again for my family. My son just got finished eating one and said they are 'licious'.
