I got this recipe for apple pie muffins from a book called "Muffins and More" and the recipe comes from Canadian chef/host Daphna Rabinovitch. I swear I could eat these every day! I figured it wouldn't be fair if I rave about something without giving the recipe, so I typed it below.
2 1/4 cups - all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups - packed brown sugar
1 tsp - baking soda
1/2 tsp - salt
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup melted butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups diced peeled apples
1/2 cup - packed brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans (I used almonds)
1/3 cup - all purpose flour
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp melted butter
Topping - in large bowl, stir brown sugar, nuts, flour, and cinnamon. Drizzle with butter, toss with fork. Set aside.
Muffins - Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Whisk together egg, buttermilk, butter and vanilla; pour over dry ingredients. Stir in apples until dry ingredients are moistened.
Bake at 375 F.(190 C.) for 25 minutes, or until tops are firm to the touch.
