Hazelnut and brown sugar… yummy muffins!



  • ¾ cup light brown sugar, tightly packed

  • ¼ cup maple syrup

  • ½ cup vegetable oil

  • 2 tsp vanilla

  • ½ cup plain applesauce

  • Dry Ingredients:

  • ½ tsp salt

  • 1 cup hazelnut or almond meal

  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour

  • 2 tsp baking powder

  • ¾ tsp baking soda



  • ¾ cup hazelnut or almond meal

  • 3 Tbsp white whole wheat flour

  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar

  • ⅓ cup chopped hazelnuts

  • Enough vegetable oil to make it crumbly (about 3 Tbsp)



  1. Heat the oven to 350ºF.

  2. In a mixing bowl, combine all the wet ingredients using a handheld or stand mixer. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients, then slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined.

  3. Make the crumble: In a medium bowl, combine the hazelnut meal, flour, brown sugar and chopped hazelnuts. Add vegetable oil slowly until it just makes a wet crumble.

  4. Sprinkle a little of the crumble into the bottom of lined muffin tins, then top with a large scoop of the muffin batter. Top with the remaining crumble and bake in the oven for 15–20 minutes or until puffed and brown.

  5. Let cool slightly before serving.
