Applesauce Oatmeal Breakfast Muffins

This delicious muffin recipe comes from my friend Angie, who got it from Key Ingredient, which was submitted by Foodiewife F., who got it and adapted it from a friend's recipe blog. Sounds like a biblical genealogy of sorts. In any case, this recipe is a winner.

Topping:
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
4 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon
6 tablespoons flour
1/2 cup old fashioned oatmeal

Cake:
2 cups flour
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
dash salt
2 eggs, beaten well
1 cup applesauce
1/2 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix all topping ingredients together by rubbing with fingers, set aside. In a large bowl, mix your flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In another bowl, whisk together your eggs, applesauce, oil, and vanilla. Mix well. Add applesauce mixture to flour mixture, stir till wet. With an ice cream scoop, fill each each muffin well about 2/3 full. (You an also bake as a cake, or as smaller muffins). Sprinkle topping over batter. Bake at 350 F. for approximately 25 minutes.
