  • Preheat oven to 400° F.
  • Mix dry ingredients together in a bowl (flour through salt).
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, applesauce, and brown sugar.
  • Melt butter; add to wet ingredients and stir to combine.
  • Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients just until moist.
  • In a separate, small bowl, mix together walnuts and brown sugar for the topping.
  • Divide batter equally among muffin cups, then sprinkle on topping, pressing down lightly so it sticks.
  • Bake for 13-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
  • Cool for 5-6 minutes before serving.
