  • 1 none cooking spray
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup pecans, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup flour, all-purpose
  • 1 cup flour, whole wheat
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 large egg
  • 1 cup applesauce, unsweetened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 4 medium apple


  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a muffin pan with cooking spray.
  • In a small bowl, mix together 2 tablespoons of the brown sugar, the pecans, and 1/2 teaspoon of the cinnamon.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flours, baking soda, remaining cinnamon, and salt.

  • Cool completely before serving. Serve with remaining apples on the side.
