Apple Cinnamon Walnut Muffins
Grease a muffin tin.
Lightly spoon flour into a measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, both sugars, wheat germ, baking soda, and salt.
Mix in oats, diced apple, and walnuts.
Make a well in the center of the mixture. Combine the buttermilk, oil, vanilla extract, and egg; add until dry mixture, stirring until just moist. Stir in boiling water.
Let batter stand for 15 minutes and preheat the oven to 375F.
Spoon batter into the muffin tin. Bake for 20 minutes, or until muffins spring back when touched.
Let cool slightly before topping.
Cinnamon Sugar Topping
Combine sugar and cinnamon in a bowl.
Dip muffins into butter and then cinnamon/sugar mixture.
