1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup light butter, softened
1 cup Splenda granulated
1/2 cup fat-free egg sibstitute

1 TBSP light butter
Preheat oven to 375º. Spray a 12 cup muffin pan.
In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Mix in vanilla and applesauce. Stir in apples and gradually blend in the flour mixture.
Fold in the cinnamon chips. Spoon into sprayed muffin pan.
In a small bowl, mix brown sugar, flour and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture is like coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over tops of mixture in muffin pan.
Bake 20 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Allow to sit for 5 minutes before removing the muffins from the pan. Cool on a wire rack.
MY SPIN: No matter how I try.....my topping never comes out to where it will 'crumble' and be able to 'sprinkle'.....so the next time I make these, I'm going to make about half of the topping and just put a 'dollop' on top of each muffin before baking. I might even put 2 cups of apples in it.
|These are the cinnamon 'chips' I used.|
