These were great! I did only minor adjustments. Instead of melted butter I used one tablespoon of canola oil, 1/3 cup homemade applesauce and a tablespoon of homemade apple butter my dad made (Not sure what he puts in it but it has some nice flavor and sure is yummy). I also added a teaspoon of vanilla, and instead of 1/4 cup of white sugar I used 1/2 cup packed brown sugar, and 1/2 cup white sugar, per other reviewers recommendations . In the flour mixture I added a teaspoon of cinnamon and a teaspoon of nutmeg. I baked these at 350 instead because I was using a cupcake pan, which I think is smaller than muffin pans as I ended up with 12 and still had a bit left over, though baked just a tad longer. For my topping, I added just a tad more butter to crumble, 1 tsp of cinnamon as opposed to the 1/8 tsp suggested, and a bit of white sugar as I did not quite have 1/3 cup of brown sugar left since I put it in the muffin itself, and some rolled oats. The one mistake I did make, was using a suggestion from another reviewer who said to add the topping on 5 minutes before it is done baking. Don't do this! My muffins had already risen, so the topping rolled right off, made my pan a mess, and of course did not bake into the muffin itself. (I should have known better). Besides, you are not supposed to interrupt baking from what I understand. All-in-all, again, great recipe even though I didn't follow it to the T.
