Apple Pie Crumb Cake Muffin

We’re on a muffin kick. Probably because it just SNOWED (ok, sleeted…but it’s supposed to snow) and we needed something warm to have with our hot tea in the middle of May in Montana. This recipe is another goody from Isa Chandra Moskowitz of the Post Punk Kitchen. You can find it in Vegan with a Vengeance. Yummy. Just be careful…you’ll want to eat them all at once!

Apple Pie Crumb Cake Muffins

For Muffins:
1 1/2 cups flour (we used whole wheat pastry flour)
1/4 cup plus 2 T raw (turbinado) sugar (we forgot the extra and they still tasted great!)
1 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
1 t ground cinnamon
1/2 t ground allspice
1/8 t ground cloves
1/4 t salt
3/4 cup apple cider (we didn’t have any and used applesauce instead…which made them a bit milder)
1/3 cup canola or olive oil
1 t vanilla extract
1/2 cup grated apple
1/2 cup chopped apple (1/4 inch pieces)

For topping:
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 t ground cinnamon
1/4 t ground allspice
Pinch of salt
3 T canola or olive oil

Prepare the topping by mixing all the dry topping ingredients together in a small bowl. Drizzle the oil while mixing with your fingertips until crumbs form. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and lightly grease a 12 – muffin tin.

In a large mixing bowl, mix together all the dry muffin ingredients. Create a well in the center and add the apple cider, oil, and vanilla. Mix, then fold in the grated and chopped apple.

Fill each muffin cup 2/3 full. Sprinkle the crumb topping over each muffin. Bake for 22 minutes.

    HI Happy Foody. I have been enjoying your blog recently and had to say KUDOS to you on content and photos (always nice). Would enjoy some writing on how to simplify one’s kitchen when trying to incorporate more whole/raw food prep areas, etc. (with pics too if possible) There needs to be a whole class on this somewhere. Anyway, wish we could buy a little booklet of all your recipes. Have to copy and paste each section. Thanks for all your hard work in posting and sharing.

    Hello! I just found your website tonight by looking up “why high fructose corn syrup is bad” on Google. I enjoyed reading your post. I knew high fructose corn syrup is bad, and have been humored by the commercials that are coming out saying otherwise, but they encouraged to do just what they say – get the facts!

    Anyhow, reading through your stuff is inspirational. I always wished I would eat healthier, and I truly didn’t believe I could eat vegetarian until I got pregnant and started having aversions to meat, and loving fruits and veggies. (I still love my dairy products, I don’t think I can give those up.) I just realized you are Sara from Walk Slowly Live Wildly! I LOVE your photographs (I am a photographer as well) and have sort of silently found a kindred spirit in you, as our lifestyles are similar in many ways. I’m going to be cheesy now and say thanks for making the world a little bit happier!!

    I usualy add like two or three times more cinnamon. It makes it spicier. It mixes great with apples obviously.

    Delicious! Substitute flour for whole wheat flour and apple sauce for the oil for a lighter version!

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
