Apple Streusel Muffins




Yield 12 Muffins

A delicious muffin while we are in apple season!



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease muffin tins or line with paper liners.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the butter, maple syrup, and vanilla extract until combined. Whisk in the kefir, yogurt, and eggs until smooth. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. 
  3. Add the dry ingredients into the wet. Stir with a spoon until just combined. Fold in the diced apple and 1 cup of the granola.
  4. Divide the batter evenly among the wells of the muffin tin. Sprinkle the remaining 1 cup of granola evenly over the batter and press it down lightly.
  5. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the middle of a muffin comes out clean (about 25 minutes).
  6. Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a rack to cool. 


*Store in a covered container at room temperature for up to 2 days, or for up to a week in the fridge.
