For the muffins:
1 cup all purpose flour
3/4 whole wheat flour
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
8 ounces applesauce (unsweetened)
4 ounces almond milk
4 ounces olive oil (you may use canola or coconut if you prefer)
2 tablespoons maple syrup
For the topping:
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
2 teaspoons almond milk, more if needed
Preheat oven to 400 (F). Grease or line muffin tray, set aside.
In a large bowl stir together flours, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. In a separate bowl, whisk together applesauce, almond milk, oil, and maple syrup. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry, stirring until combined.
Fill the muffin cups 2/3 of the way full, sprinkle each with a little cinnamon sugar, and bake for 18 to 20 minutes. Let cool in the pan for at least 20 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
In a small bowl, combine the ingredients until smooth. Drizzle over muffins.
