Apple Cinnamon Muffins with Oat Crumb Topping

Cinnamon has this cozy toasty feel to it and that's why it's the perfect spice on a cold winter day. 
This recipe is adapted from
These are best enjoyed warm from the oven with a big cup of piping hot chai masala tea. 

1 1/2 cups flour 
1/2 cup whole wheat flour 
1 tsp baking powder 
1/2 tsp baking soda 
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon 
1/3 cup plus 2 Tbs oil 
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs

1 apple - diced 

1/3 cup flour 
1/3 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup brown sugar 
1 tsp cinnamon 
1/8 tsp salt 
3 Tbs oil-1/4 cup oil

Preheat oven to 375°F/190°C 
Line a muffin tin with paper liners 
Mix together the first 5 ingredients, add the next 4 ingredients and stir until just combined. Add the diced apples and fold them in until well distributed throughout the batter. 
Scoop into prepared muffin tin filling half way. 
To make the topping mix together the dry ingredients then slowly add the oil until you have a crumbly texture that slightly sticks together to make big crumbs. 
Sprinkle over the muffin batter. 
Place in the preheated oven and bake for 18-20 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
