Apple Granola Muffins

These manage to be both yummy and healthy!  I've made them with Oat & Honey granola before, and this week I'm trying them with Vanilla Almond granola.   

Apple Granola Muffins

1 cup flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 eggs
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup plain lowfat yogurt
2 Tbsp butter, melted
3/4 cup granola
2 cups shredded apple (I used granny smiths and left the skin on, with good results.)

3/4 cup granola, alone
1/2 cup granola mixed with
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
3 Tbsp chilled butter

-Preheat the oven to 400, and line 12 muffin cups with paper liners.
-In a large bowl, whisk together flours, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
-In a separate bowl, whisk together egg, brown sugar, yogurt, and butter.  Make a well in the center of the flour mixture.  Add the egg mixture to the well, and mix in the flour mixture until just combined.  Fold in the granola and shredded apple.
-Divide batter among the muffin cups, and sprinkle with the topping.
-Bake until a toothpick inserted in the muffins come out clean, about 20 minutes.  Cool 5 minutes before removing from tin.
-Serve warm or at room temperature.
