  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a standard 12-cup muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray. In a large bowl combine flour, oats, 2?3 cup of the brown sugar, 1 teaspoon of the cinnamon, plus baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  2. In another bowl combine cream cheese, yogurt, egg, milk, applesauce and vanilla; mix well. Stir into flour mixture, stirring just until moist. Stir in apple; mix gently.
  3. Spoon batter evenly into muffin cups filling two-thirds full. In a small bowl combine remaining 2 tablespoons brown sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Sprinkle evenly over batter.
  4. Bake 15 minutes or until muffins spring back when touched lightly in the center. Remove muffins from pan and place on a wire rack to cool. Serve warm, or let cool completely.
