Applesauce Cinnamon Oat Muffins

I have been making muffins each weekend for the family to take in lunches or to grab as a morning treat on their way to work or school.  I have made Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins, Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins and today, the Oatmeal Cinnamon Applesauce Muffins pictured above.  They are moist and tender on the inside, with a nice crunchy topping on the outside. 
Here's the recipe:
1 1/2 cup quick-oats
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup  applesauce
1/2 cup reduced fat milk
3 tbsp canola oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg white
1 tbs butter, melted
1/4 cup quick oats
1 tbs brown sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 400. Grease a muffin tin or line with liners and set aside. (
In a large bowl combine the first seven ingredients (dry ingredients).
In another bowl combine the wet ingredients together. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix slowly until just combined.
Fill muffins tins or liners 3/4 full with batter.
Combine the topping ingredients and sprinkle evenly over batter.
Bake for 15-18 minutes (or until toothpick comes out clean).slightly adapted from Taste of Home and Sweet Treats and More
