* 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
* 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
* 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
* 1 teaspoon cinnamon


* 1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
* 1/3 cup canola oil
* 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
* 1 egg or 2 egg whites
* 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
* 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
* 1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour (you can use all-purpose flour if you want)
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 1 teaspoon cinnamon
* 1 cup buttermilk
* 2 cups diced peeled firm tart apples (I leave the skin on for extra fiber)

For Topping: In a small bowl mix together sugar, flour, butter and cinnamon until crumbly; set aside.
For Muffins: In a large bowl whisk together brown sugar, oil, applesauce, egg or egg whites and vanilla until smooth
In a separate bowl, sift together all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, soda, salt and cinnamon.
Stir oil mixture into flour mixture alternately with buttermilk.
Fold in apples, mixing just until combined.
Spoon into greased muffin cups filling 3/4 full.
Sprinkle topping over evenly.
Bake at 350°F for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and the tops spring back.
