Ingredients: (Makes 12)

Crumble Topping

1/3 cup packed brown sugar 

1 tbsp coconut sugar 

1 tsp cinnamon 

1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted 

2/3 cup AP flour 


1 3/4 cup all purpose flour 

1 tsp baking soda 

1 tsp baking powder 

1 tsp cinnamon 

1/2 tsp salt 

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened 

1/2 cup brown sugar 

1/4 cup coconut sugar 

2 large eggs, room temp. 

1/2 cup plain yogurt 

2 tsp vanilla extract 

1/4 cup non-dairy milk 

1 1/2 cups apples (peeled, chopped) 


1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees, line muffin tin with liners, set aside.

2. Make crumb topping (combine ingredients, do not overmix to prevent a paste).

3. Whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, set aside.

4. Using a handheld mixer, beat butter and both sugars until light in colour and creamy (approx. 2 minutes). Add eggs, yogurt, and vanilla. Beat on medium speed for 1 minute, then increase to high speed until fully combined. Alternate adding dry ingredients and milk until fully combined (do not overmix). Fold in apples. 

5. Using an ice cream scoop, spoon the mixture into muffin liners, filling to the top. Sprinkle approx. 1 1/2 tbsp crumble on each muffin, pressing into batter lightly.

6. Bake for 5 minutes at 425 degrees, then reduce to 350 degrees and bake for an additional 15 – 18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool in tin for 5 minutes before removing.

Can freeze for up to 3 months, once thawed consume within three days. All ingredients are available at Jo Anne’s Place – See our store hours here.
