Whole Wheat Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins

One of my darling clients brought me the equivalent of a half of an apple tree's worth of fresh apples this week. I LOVE apples, but I knew there was no way I was going to be able to barrel through that many!
Naturally, I looked to find a recipe that would let me bake some of those delicious beauties. I couldn't find anything that I loved, so I did what I usually do...created my own.

Whole Wheat Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins

Ingredients:
2 1/2 cups of Whole Wheat Flour
1 cup of splenda (you could use agave/stevia or honey if you'd like)
1/2 cup of white sugar
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 TBS of pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp of salt
2 eggs (or you could use 4 egg whites)
1 cup of pumpkin puree
1/2 cup of applesauce
2 cups of apples peeled, cored, and chopped (this was 2 apples for me)

Streusel Topping
Combine:
2 TBS whole wheat flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Directions:
Preheat your oven to 350. Mix together eggs, pumpkin, applesauce, Splenda, and sugars. In a separate bowl combine flour, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Slowly combine dry mixture with wet mixture. Once combined fold in chopped apples. Divide into muffin tins sprayed with non-stick spray or lined with liners. My batch made 18. Once divided sprinkle with streusel topping.
Bake for 35-40 mins or until they pass the toothpick test!
The stats:

These muffins are SO. Dang. Good. Confession: I don't even like baked fruit. But these...moist and delicious. The streusel topping makes it. They would be a great side to a warm soup, perfect for a breakfast, tasty for a snack, or even a good item to throw in the freezer and have to take with you on the go.

Do you like baked fruit? I usually don't. I think it's a weird texture thing for me, and isn't fruit supposed to be cold? Not warm?
