Apple-Pumpkin muffins (2 WW pts)

Here’s another muffin recipe. I bake muffins on Sunday’s and then put each one in an individual ziploc bag and throw them all in the freezer. Then hubby and I can just grab one on the way out the door.

These muffins are very good and I like the flavors of the apple and pumpkin together. The flax seed adds a nutty flavor and it’s perfect with this recipe.

Apple-Pumpkin Muffins (from Allrecipes.com – I didn’t make the streusel topping) makes ~24 (22 for me) – 2 WW pts (without streusel topping)
Muffin:
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour – I used King Arthurs White Whole Wheat Flour
2 cups white sugar – I used 1/2 Splenda baking mix & 1/2 Splenda brown sugar mix
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice – I used 1.5 tsp cinnamon, 3/4 tsp ginger, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, 1/4 tsp cloves
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, lightly beaten – I used 1/2 cup Egg Beaters
1 cup canned pumpkin puree – I used a whole can
1/2 cup vegetable oil – I used 1/4 cup applesauce + 3/4 cup ground Flax seed
2 cups peeled, cored and chopped apple

Streusel Topping (I did not make this):
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 teaspoons butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease 18 muffin cups or use paper liners.

In a large bowl, sift together 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 2 cups sugar, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together eggs, pumpkin and oil. Add pumpkin mixture to flour mixture; stirring just to moisten. Fold in apples. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.

In a small bowl, mix together 2 tablespoons flour, 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle topping evenly over muffin batter.

Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean.
