Apple Pie Muffins

My family loves to eat muffins for breakfast.  They are quick and easy to make ahead so we aren't rushing around trying to find something to eat.  One of our favorites is Apple Pie Muffins.  It has a crunchy top and lots of apple pieces.
 Ingredients:

Topping:
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 tsp cinnamon

Muffins:
1 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup buttermilk
2 peeled diced apples
 In a small bowl mix together brown sugar, flour, butter and cinnamon for topping until crumbly; set aside.
 In a large bowl whisk  together brown sugar, oil, egg and vanilla until smooth.
 In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking soda and salt.
 Stir oil mixture into flour mixture alternately with buttermilk.
 Fold in apples mixing until combined.
 Spoon into greased muffin cups filling 3/4 full.  I make regular and mini sized muffins for the boys.
Sprinkle topping over evenly.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
Wait for them to cool a bit before removing from the pan as they are hard to get out when warm. 
Enjoy!!
