Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Makes 12 Muffins

1 cup - Granulated sugar
2 cups - All-purpose flour
1/2 tsp - Salt
2 tsp - Baking soda
1/2 tsp plus a pinch of Ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp - Ground cinnamon
2 - Fuji apples, peeled, cored, and chopped
1/3 cup - walnuts, chopped
1 cup - Greek yogurt
2 - Large eggs
1 stick - Unsalted butter, melted
12 - Cupcake liners

1/4 cup - Brown sugar
1/4 tsp - Cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
1.       In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon.  After chopping up the apples and walnuts, add them to the dry ingredients.  Mix together until all apples are coated.
2.       In a medium bowl whisk eggs, butter, and yogurt until smooth.  Fold the mixture into the apple mixture making sure you don’t over mix.  Divide batter among muffin cups.
3.       In a small bowl, mix the topping ingredients (brown sugar and cinnamon) then sprinkle on top of each muffin.
4.       Bake for 16 minutes or until the muffins spring back to touch. The toothpick trick will also work.
5.       Let muffins cool.  Serve warm or at room temperature.
