Pumpkin Apple Muffins

I am on a small quest to find new pumpkin recipes. The only ones I have are pumpkin chocolate chip cookies and breads. I also need to find a use for some apples I bought to be a decoration and I am realizing that that's a nice thought but now they are going to go bad and what a waste of really delicious apples that would be. So luckily while looking for a new pumpkin recipe I found this and it not only has pumpkin but it also had apples. 

I haven't ever made muffins so I was so interested to make these. They turned out so moist and flavorful. My girls scarfed them down. It sounded like an odd combination but its definitely going to be a recipe I make again.

  2. Pumpkin and apples together at last :)

    Sounds like the perfect fall combination. I really think I will have to make this, if only for the streusel. What a great idea! And what an easy way to make the house smell like fall!

    Sorry I haven't commented in so long! I have kind of fallen off the blogosphere this summer but, I still have been following and still love your recipes and will be a more devoted follower starting now!

    Thanks for always posting such awesome pieces :)
