OH. MY. GOODNESS!!!! I'm in love. These are some of the best muffins I've ever made. Absolutely perfect for chilly fall mornings. I substituted applesauce for the oil as well, although I'm not quite sure how the applesauce was supposed to work as a substitute for the butter in the topping (I'm not the most savvy of bakers lol). When I mixed up the topping with the applesauce it (obviously) was very moist, so I sprinkled a flour/sugar mix on top of it and TA-DA! Passable streusel topping. The pumpkin flavor is VERY understated, I think this is largely due to the applesauce substitute, though. I may cut back on the chopped apples and add some walnuts next time, as well as reduce the amount of sugar--these are pretty sweet (again, the applesauce probably played a role here, even though I used unsweetened). SO: consider cutting back on the sugar and if using applesauce be prepared for more apple than pumpkin flavor. Throw on a pot of coffee and enjoy the smell of apple, pumpkin, and cinnamon wafting through your house for the rest of the day. :)
