pumpkin and apple muffins

 These are delicious for breakfast or perfect for something sweet after dinner. 

Servings 12 muffins
Total Time 30 minutes

  • 2 cups flour, you can use whole wheat or white... I used a combo of both!
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon course salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 apple, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup pureed pumpkin (read: how to turn a pie pumpkin into puree)
  • 1/4-1/2 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350.

In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice. In a smaller bowl, combine pumpkin, egg, apple and vanilla. Add wet ingredients to dry and stir until combined.

Begin with adding 1/4 cup milk and stir. If batter is still thick, add additional milk.   Stir in the melted butter.

Divide the batter among the 12 muffin cups.  Bake for 15-20 minutes.
