we are in full party mode here.
the very hungry caterpillar joint birthday party is in two days!
but, i took some time and whipped up these muffins from those delicious apples we picked the other day!

Whole Wheat Apple Crumble Muffins
Makes about 12.
1 1/2 - 2 cups diced, peeled apple
2 1/4 cups whole white wheat flour
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon all spice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup canola oil
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla 
2/3 cup whole milk
1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch salt
3 tablespoons melted butter

Heat oven to 375*.  Line muffin cups with paper liners or butter your pan.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the 2 1/4 cups of flour, brown sugar, baking powder, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, all spice, and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
In another bowl, whisk oil, eggs, vanilla, and milk.
Mix wet ingredients into dry and stir until just combined.
Fold in the chopped apple. 
Spoon the batter into 12 prepared muffin cups, filling about 3/4 full.
In a small bowl, combine the 1/3 cup of flour with 1/3 cup of brown sugar, the cinnamon, and the salt and mix into the melted butter. Sprinkle a generous amount over each filled muffin cup.
Bake the muffins for about 18 to 23 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a large muffin comes out clean.
