Apple Streusel Muffins/Bread

When these muffins are baking, the aroma is irresistible! I make them often when apples are in season.

    This recipe was the 4th Diabetic Muffin recipe that I tried and these are the best of all and are delicious. Using Tupperware's Chop and Prep to chop and mix the topping together works great.
