Apple Spice Muffin

I love a nice warm muffin with my coffee in the morning. These muffins here are easy to make and pretty good for you. The pumpkin and pumpkin spice add a nice touch to a traditional apple cinnamon muffin. They are perfect in the fall, but I like them year around. If you’re not a big fan of pumpkin, feel free to replace the pumpin puree with apple sauce.

These muffins freeze really well. Make a batch or two and freeze them. Whenever you’re in the need for a sweet treat, pull one out, thaw it and if you like, warm it up in the toaster oven or microwave for a bit.

A yummy apple spice muffin.

These make great treats for those ghosts and goblins to take home for a Halloween treat. You can even make them a few week’s ahead of time, pop the muffins in the freezer, and then just thaw the day of the party.

Try making these Thanksgiving muffins next. This is another muffin that freezes well.
