- Make the streusel topping by mixing the flour, sugar and spices together.
- Melt the vegan margarine and stir into the flour mixture, it will be a grainy coarse mixture.
- Grease 18 muffin cups or use the paper liners.
- In a large bowl mix the flour, salt and baking soda.
- In a separate bowl, mix the sugar, and spices, add the pumpkin puree and mix to a smooth consistency.
- Add the egg replacement and again mix well.
- Add the oil.
- Clean and cut the apples in small pieces. Add to the flour mixture.
- Add the pumpkin mixture to the flour mixture and stir enough to moisten.
- Fill the muffin tins 3/4 full and sprinkle the streusel topping over.
- Place in the preheated oven and bake for 30-35 minutes.
It’s best to cut the apples in very small pieces, and don’t put too many – not more than the 2 cups, as the muffins need enough dough (batter) to hold together.
