Vegan Whole Wheat Sweet Potato Almond Mini Muffins

1 cup whole wheat flour
½ c all-purpose flour
½ cup brown sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
⅛ tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. nutmeg
½ tsp. salt
1 cup sweet potato puree
¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
¼ cup vegetable oil
½ cup finely chopped almonds

Crumb Topping
¼ cup finely chopped almonds
¼ cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp. nutmeg
Earth Balance vegan butter

Sift all the dry ingredients and set aside in a medium mixing bowl. In a large mixing bowl, mix all the wet ingredients. Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture, mixing thoroughly. Spoon into a greased mini muffin tin. In a small bowl, mix the crumb topping ingredients minus the vegan butter. Slice a tiny amount of Earth Balance vegan butter onto each muffin and then sprinkle with the crumb topping mixture. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes, until lightly golden. Makes roughly 3 dozen mini muffins.
