  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour or white whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar*
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons apple pie spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 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)
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped pecans
  • 1 tablespoon flax seed meal or toasted wheat germ
  • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar*
  • 1 tablespoon butter
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.
