  • In a large bowl stir together flour, baking powder, apple pie spice, and salt. Add apples; toss gently to coat.

  • In a medium bowl combine eggs, brown sugar, mashed chickpeas, yogurt, applesauce, and melted butter. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups.

  • Bake for 16 to 18 minutes or until light golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the centers comes out clean. Cool in muffin cups on wire racks for 5 minutes. Remove from muffin cups; serve warm.

Tips

If desired, sprinkle tops of muffins lightly with turbinado (raw) sugar before baking.
