  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs

  • Streusel Topping
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • FOR THE STREUSEL TOPPING
  • Combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon and butter together in a small bowl. Using your hands, work the ingredients together till they resemble coarse crumbs. Refrigerate till ready to use.
  • Grease 18 muffin cups or line with paper cups.
  • In a large bowl stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and salt.
  • In a separate bowl combine the 2 large eggs, honey, coconut oil, pumpkin and whisk well.
  • Stir the wet ingredients into the flour mixture just until all the ingredients are moistened.
  • Stir the apples into the batter mixture.
  • Spoon the muffin batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling up to 3/4 full.
  • Divide the streusal topping evenly over the muffins.
  • Bake on the middle rack of preheated oven for about 20 to 25 minutes or until the muffins are a golden brown and the tops spring back lightly to the touch.
  • You can also insert a wooden skewer in the middle to test if the muffins are done. If the skewer comes out clean then the muffins are ready.
