Spiced Apple Crumb Muffins
A Spiced Healthy Treat With a Delicious Crumb Topping
These next two muffin recipes are based on my friend Darlene's healthy recipes. D, as I call her, is a master at baking with alternative ingredients. The spelt flour has more nutritional value than regular wheat flour and it is easier to digest to boot. These are macrobiotic and super healthy, and my kids, as well as all visitors, gobble them up.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with papers or oil it with two tablespoons of the vegetable oil.
For the crumb topping, combine all the dry ingredients in a small bowl. Add the vegetable oil and soy milk and rub everything together with your fingers—the mixture should be pebbly. Set the mixture aside.
For the muffins, in a small bowl, toss the cornstarch with the apples. In another large bowl whisk together ½ cup of the vegetable oil and all the syrup and soy milk. Sift in the remaining ingredients (except for the walnuts) and fold in the apples and walnuts, Evenly distribute the batter in the muffin cups and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick tests clean.
