Granola Crumble Topping:

What You’ll Do…

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Whisk together dry ingredients for muffins (through salt) in a medium mixing bowl.
  3. Add wet ingredients (through almond butter) and mix just until no dry clumps remain (batter will be thick, almost like dough).
  4. Generously coat twelve wells of a nonstick muffin pan with cooking spray. If using cupcake liners, lightly coat insides with cooking spray.
  5. Divide batter between wells evenly and press down with wetted fingers.
  6. Combine granola crumble ingredients in a small bowl and spoon over top muffins, one heaping tablespoon each.
  7. Bake for 25-35 minutes until a toothpick or knife inserted comes out clean.
  8. Let muffins cool for 10-15 minutes.
