Method: 

Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper or foil muffin liners.

Combine flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger and allspice in a medium bowl. Stir in pecans, currants and apple.

In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, egg, oil and maple syrup. Add milk mixure to flour; stir just until ingredients are combined. Spoon batter into muffin cups. Sprinkle granola on top of each muffin.

Bake 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.
