Healthy Big Sky Muffin

Ingredients for Big Sky Muffin Recipe
2 cups Bearpaw Heritage Pancake Mix
1 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped
2/3 cup coconut sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/3 cup oil
1 egg
1 cup applesauce
Streusel topping:
1/4 cup Einkorn flour (or Bearpaw Pancake & Baking Mix, but will make the streusel melt into the muffin top)
2 tablespoons coconut sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch of fine sea salt
3 tablespoons cold butter, cut into cubes
1 teaspoon allspice
Ready to get started?
  1. Preheat oven to 425 F. Fill a muffin tin with 12 paper liners.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, sift together the Baking Mix with the cinnamon and allspice.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the oil and applesauce.
  4. In a separate bowl, beat egg with the sugar on medium-low for 1 minute, then high for 4 minutes, until they become creamy and thick.
  5. Fold the flour mixture into the egg. Gently stir in the applesauce oil mixture into the batter. Toss in the walnuts.
  6. Spoon the batter evenly into the cups, filling nearly to the rim of the cup. Sprinkle streusel topping on top of each muffin.
  7. Place the muffins in the oven, then reduce the oven temperature to 375F. Bake for 30 minutes until a toothpick comes away clean when inserted into the center of the muffin. Let cool in pan for 15minutes, then remove from pan.
Chef’s notes:
  1. Preheating the oven to a higher temperate and then lowering it once the muffins go in the oven helps give muffins a nice shape and lighter texture.
  2. Beating eggs with sugar until they become creamy and thick gives strength to the structure of the muffin.
