Apple Pumpkin Muffins
Okay. Labor Day has passed. That means it is time for pumpkin. Sorry to those of you who aren’t ready, but I sure as heck am! I felt a bit of a chill in the air on my early morning walk (about as much of a chill as you could expect in Florida…) the other day and although it’s now over 90 degrees in the afternoon, I am going to pretend this is the start my favorite season of the year!
I love all things pumpkin and I love all things apple so combining them into a one is my ultimate fall treat! I kind of based these off of my pumpkin muffins, swapped out a couple of things, tweaked measurements, and added in diced apples. The apples add nice texture, flavor, and moisture to the muffins!
Adding a spiced crumb topping was the perfect way to finish these muffins off and gives them a nicer finished look. You can also add nuts!
Recipe Tips and Suggestions:
- I like to use honeycrisp apples for baking (and snacking) and used them for this recipe. You can use other types of apples, but I don’t recommend red delicious as they get quite mushy when cooked.
- Be sure not to overmix your batter once you have added the dry ingredients in. Overmixing can cause the muffins not to rise.
- I diced my apples up pretty finely as I didn’t want too many large chunks, but you can leave them a bit bigger if you prefer that.
- Feel free to stir in nuts if you’d like. You can also skip the crumb topping if you don’t want to take that extra step (but I obviously recommend not skipping it!).
