The muffin itself was excellent; very moist. I would change the topping, however, There was too much granulated sugar. I did not use it all on 12 muffins and it did not melt. It just fell off the top aftger baking along with some of the almonds. I would do what the last reviewer did and use brown sugar and lightly press the almonds on top before baking.

This recipe is great. Even my kids asked for seconds and they are very picky eaters. These apple muffins have lots of flavor and are made with stuff already in the house. I did omit the almonds but will definitly be making this recipe again and again.
