Step 1: Pre-heat & Prep
Pre-heat oven to 375° and grease 12 muffin cups or place paper liners in them.
Step 2: Mix Dry Ingredients
Stir together flour, xanthan gum, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Step 3: Mix Wet Ingredients
Combine applesauce, eggs and milk.
Step 4: Combine All Ingredients
Add wet ingredients to dry and stir together until smooth. Should form a smooth thick batter, similar to brownie batter. Mix in chopped apples.
Step 5: Fill Muffin Cups
Fill muffin cups 3/4 full with batter.
Step 6: Make Crumb Topping
Combine brown sugar, flour and cinnamon until well mixed. Chop up butter into small pieces and cut in. It is often easiest to use your fingers to gently break up the butter and press it into the dry mix to create a crumbly consistency.
Step 6: Sprinkle & Bake
Sprinkle crumb topping onto muffins. Bake for 25 – 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Step 7: Cool, Enjoy, Store
Cool in muffin tin for 5 minutes then move to cooling rack. Enjoy whenever you like but be sure they are completely cool before storing (around an hour). Store in an airtight container.
