HERE'S ALL YOU NEED
- 3/4 cup whole milk
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1 egg
- 1 medium apple, cored, peeled, small dice
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt

HEAT OVEN 400ºF. Grease bottoms of 12 medium muffin cups or line with paper baking cups.
In a small bowl, beat milk, oil and egg. Stir in diced apple. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Make a well and pour in wet ingredients. Stir slowly just until flour is moistened--batter will be lumpy. Do not over stir.
Use a 2-inch scooper to divide batter evenly into muffin cups. Should fill cups 2/3 full. Sprinkle with brown sugar-oat topping if you want.
BAKE 18 to 20 minutes, until golden brown. Immediately remove from pan.
