Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare 12 full-size muffin cups with spray-oil. Using a large bowl, sift together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, soda, and salt. In a small bowl using a fork, beat buttermilk, oil, and egg until well blended. Stir the liquid mixture in the flour mixture until flour mixture is moistened only; batter will be lumpy. Fold in apples and pecans. In a cup, mix granulated sugar and cinnamon. Spoon batter in muffin cups; then sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture. Bake muffins in the preheated oven for 25 minutes or until they test done. Immediately remove from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm or cool. Makes 12
