Apple Bush Muffins

Found these amazingly delicious apples at the farmers market and the first thing I thought of was muffins!  Apple cinnamon muffins with walnuts for Sunday morning breakfast!
My friend Teri Bush Belvins suggested I toast the walnuts to bring out the flavor and boy was she right.  It really intensified the nuttiness of the walnuts so Apple Bush Muffins became the name to say thanks to Teri for her great idea!
Ingredients for 12 muffins:
2 Cups self rising flour
1/3 cup buttermilk
¾ cup sugar
¼ cup brown sugar
2 eggs
¼ cup melted butter
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ cup finely chopped toasted walnuts
1 ½ cup finely chopped apples
Topping:
1/3 cup brown sugar
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup chopped toasted walnuts
2 tablespoons melted butter
Method:
Mix together flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon, toasted walnuts and chopped apples.
In a separate bowl mix together the eggs, melted butter, vanilla and buttermilk.
Pour the liquid into the dry ingredients and mix only until everything is moistened. Do not over mix!
Coat muffin tin with non stick spray or use paper liners.
Fill the muffin tins ¾ full with batter.
Mix together the topping ingredients and distribute evenly over the muffins.
Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 20 to 23 minutes.
Cool five minutes prior to removing from muffin tins.
