Apple Crumble Muffins

When traveling this weekend in New York, I went to an apple orchard  that was absolutely PACKED! So packed in fact, that I was too overwhelmed to stand in line for the apple donuts. And this is really saying something. Typically I’m in to win it when donuts are involved. Especially pillowy, sugary, hot off the press ones at that. So I came home and made something somewhat similar, but with no lines. Though I’m sure guests will be lining up to taste them if you make them for a brunch / weekly snack!
