For the muffins:
  • 2 cups flour (AP)
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1.5 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp cookie butter
  • 2 cups SweeTango apples, peeled and grated
For the streusel topping:
  • 1/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp cookie butter (cold cookie butter works best)
For the glaze/icing:
  • 1 cup confectioners sugar
  • 3 tbsp milk or heavy cream
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray muffin tin wells with nonstick spray. Set aside.

For the muffins:
  1. In a large bowl combine the dry ingredients for the muffins, which includes flour, baking powder, baking soda, white granulated sugar, light brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Mix well.

  2. In another large bowl combine the wet ingredients for the muffins, which includes the eggs, vanilla yogurt, butter and cookie butter. Mix well.

  3. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix by hand until just combined. Add the grated apples and mix again until evenly distributed in the dough.

  4. Transfer the mixture to the muffin tins, filling the wells three quarters full. Set aside while you mix the streusel topping.

For the streusel topping:
  1. In a medium bowl combine the white granulated sugar, light brown sugar, flours, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir until combined. Add the cookie butter and use a fork or pastry cutter to mix the ingredients until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. Sprinkle evenly over the muffin tops.

  2. Place the muffin tins in the preheated oven and cook for about 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool in pan for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire cooling rack. 

For the glaze/icing:
  1. Mix the confectioners sugar and milk (or heavy cream if you want a thicker glaze) until smooth. Drizzle over muffins.

  2. Serve with a big SweeTango apple loving smile!
