1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 can pumpkin puree
1/2 cup applesauce
2 cups peeled, cored and chopped apple
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon, 3/4 teaspoons ginger, 1/2 teaspoon allspice, and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
Crumb Topping (Streusel)
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons softened butter
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line or lightly spray 18 muffin cups with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, sift together the flours, 2 cups brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, and salt.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, pumpkin, and applesauce. Add this pumpkin mixture to the flour mixture. Using as few strokes as possible, mix until everything is moistened (lumps are okay). Fold
in apples. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, each 2/3 full.
To Make Topping: Use a fork to mix together 2/3 cups brown sugar, 1/4 cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 2 tablespoons softened butter.
Lightly sprinkle streusel topping onto each muffin.
Bake for 18 - 22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Serve warm.
