Spiced Apple Cider Muffins

From: EatingWell

Cider doughnuts, a New England harvest treat, inspired these spice-happy muffins. A crumbly streusel topping made with a small amount of butter provides a delicious finish.

Ingredients
2 tablespoons  packed light brown sugar
4 teaspoons  whole-wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon  ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon  butter, cut into small pieces
2 tablespoons  finely chopped walnuts, (optional)
1 cup  whole-wheat flour
1 cup  all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons  baking powder
1/2 teaspoon  baking soda
1/4 teaspoon  salt
1 tablespoon  ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon  ground nutmeg
1   large egg
1/3 cup  packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup  apple butter , such as Smucker's
1/3 cup  maple syrup
1/3 cup  apple cider
1/3 cup  low-fat plain yogurt
1/4 cup  canola oil
Directions
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat 12 muffin cups with cooking spray.
2. To prepare streusel: Mix brown sugar, whole-wheat flour and cinnamon in a small bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in walnuts, if using.
3. To prepare muffins: Whisk whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large bowl.
4. Whisk egg and brown sugar in a medium bowl until smooth. Whisk in apple butter, syrup, cider, yogurt and oil. Make a well in the dry ingredients; add the wet ingredients and stir with a rubber spatula until just combined. Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin cups (they'll be quite full). Sprinkle with the streusel.
5. Bake the muffins until the tops are golden brown and spring back when touched lightly, 15 to 25 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Loosen edges and turn muffins out onto a wire rack to cool slightly before serving.
