Day 31: Apple Pie-Crumb Cake Muffins

It's the last day of VeganMoFo! I managed to post every weekday so, hey, good on me. Now I will return to my usual schedule of posting, eh, when I feel like it. I hope to post at least twice a week, but sometimes I get lazy or my pictures don't come out as nicely as I'd like. But I digress. Onto the food!

Apple Pie-Crumb Cake Muffins! I've been pretty immersed in politics lately and baking is the best way to decompress. And I cannot resist muffins with crumb toppings (c'mon, we all have weaknesses). Next time I will make these with a little extra grated/chopped apples because they kind of just taste like cinnamon muffins with little apple surprises. Which might be the point!

A reason why muffins are so great: You can freeze them. As much as I love muffins, I usually can't eat a whole batch. Well, I could but, blah-blah, self-control, can't have a muffin for every meal, blah-blah. Just toss some of the muffins into a ziploc bag or tupperware, freeze them, then microwave when you are ready to eat. They don't really lose anything in texture or flavor and won't get all moldy. Because no one loves a moldy muffin.

These look really nice! Yum, crumbs.
I also like to freeze muffins, it's my favourite thing to grab from the freezer.
