Sky High Blackberry Apple Muffins

Well I love blackberries and apples but had never thought of putting those two flavors together.  These muffins though are a perfect combination of these two flavors.  The strudel topping really adds to it as well.
Don't be turned off by all these ingredients, They really are pretty easy to make.
This recipe has several choices you can make.  This is the first one.  You can add 3 cups whole wheat flour, or 3 cups plain flour, or 1 1/2 cups of each.  That is the choice I made.  I started with 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour.
Add 1 1/2 cup plain flour
1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon.  You can use 2 teaspoons if you want a lighter cinnamon flavor.
3 1/2 teaspoon baking powder.  That is correct there is a lot of baking powder.
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Peel, core, and chop 1 very large apple into small pieces. Add to the flour mixture.
In a second bowl add 1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup Chobani Apple Cinnamon yogurt.  That is all of one of the small containers.  You can use a different flavor of yogurt if you like.
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce or you can substitute vegetable oil.
1/4 cup pure maple syrup or you can add 1/4 cup more brown sugar.
2 large eggs
2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup milk or unsweetened almond milk. Mix all the liquid ingredients well.
Now add the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients.
Mix well.
In another bowl add 3 Tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 Tablespoon old fashioned rolled oats.  Toss well.
1 cup fresh or frozen blackberries.
Chop the blackberries well.
In a sprayed muffin tin add a little of the muffin mixture on the bottom.
Sprinkle some blackberry pieces on top of the muffin mixture.  Don't mix because you don't wan the mixture to turn purple.
Some blackberries on top of each.
Put more batter on top.  Go ahead and fill to the top.
Sprinkle some more blackberries on top.
Now sprinkle some of the topping on top. Place in a preheated 425 oven for 5 minutes, then turn the oven down to 375.  Bake for 15-16 minutes.
I had enough batter left to make one tray of mini muffins too.  These came out first.
The muffins fresh from the oven.  They can also be frozen.
