  • 1   cup 
  • 1/2  cup 
    refrigerated or frozen egg product, thawed, or 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2   tablespoons 
    canola oil
  • 3/4  cup 
    shredded, peeled apple (1 medium)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly coat twelve 2 1/2-inch muffin cups with cooking spray; set aside. In a large bowl stir together all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, the 1/3 cup brown sugar, the baking powder, apple pie spice, and salt. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture; set aside.
In a medium bowl combine buttermilk, egg, and oil. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture; stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy). Fold in shredded apple. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling each about three-fourths full.
In a small bowl combine pecans, flax seed meal, and the 1 tablespoon brown sugar. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Spoon pecan mixture on top of muffin batter.
Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool in muffin cups on a wire rack 5 minutes. Remove muffins from muffin cups. Serve warm.
  • *Sugar Substitutes: Choose from Sweet'N Low Brown or Sugar Twin Granulated Brown. Follow package directions to use product amount equivalent to 1/3 cup brown sugar in the muffins. We do not recommend using sugar substitute for the 1 tablespoon brown sugar in the topping.
