Cinnamon Apple Muffins with Crumble Topping

We went and picked apples last weekend. Now we have what seems like a million apples in the house (not that it's a bad thing) and we have had to think of new things to try with apples. Jason decided he would like some muffins, so here is the recipe that we made today and they are yummy,

Muffin Mix
1 1/2 cups flour (all-purpose or whole wheat)
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmag
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup apple sauce
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 apple - peeled, cored and diced

1/4 cup softened butter
1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

1/3 cup flour
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup cubbed butter

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees, and line 12 muffin cups with muffin cup paper or grease.
2. Mix together flour, white sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmag. Mix in egg, milk, applesauce, and vegetable oil. Fold in apples.
3. Fill muffin cups 1/2 to 3/4 full of mixture.
4. Mix together all ingredients for the filling. Should be similar to a brown sugar butter consistency. Drop 1/2 tablespoon of filling onto the muffins.
5. Prepare the topping - mix together flour, white sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon. Add in cubed butter, mix until you have a crumble texture that can be sprinkled onto the muffins.
6. Sprinkle topping onto muffins.
7. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
8. Cool on a cooling rack or serve warm.
