You won't find anything easier than these pumpkin apple muffins. No need to even cook the apples first so they are super simple to make.
I never thought of muffins as being ‘bread related’, but apparently they are. Years ago they were made in muffin rings, not the wonderful, non-stick coated tins that we are able to buy these days.
I still think it is nice to put them in baking liners rather than straight into the tin. Once day I came across tulip style baking cups and LOVED them! I had seen them served with delicious muffins in some supermarkets and cafes, but assumed you couldn’t actually by them. Surprise! Surprise! Amazon has lots of them: take a peek at the variety!
So I decided to show off at one of my get-togethers, and buy these to make my muffins in. They were such a hit that my friends thought that I had actually bought the muffins ready made and not made by my own fair hand!

I love making these pumpkin apple muffins and sharing with my friends and family. They are so simple, quick and easy that they're fool proof each and every time.
The best news is that these are healthy and contain 2 fruits instead of 1! I love getting as many fruit and vegetables into my diet as possible, and even better when they are in a muffin!
You can have these delicious muffins with your morning coffee or afternoon tea.
Did you know that the other cultures call it "morning tea" instead of coffee?
Served warm with cream they also make a great dessert as do many pumpkin apple recipes. Apple is always my go to fruit for healthier desserts and during Fall it is divine combined with pumpkin.
What time of day would you eat your pumpkin apple muffins?
Do I really need to pick a time? I would probably have these mid morning, if I had an early Breakfast or mid afternoon if I had a light lunch!

These apple pumpkin muffins are the perfect way to start your day!

- 2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 ½ tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1 can (15oz) pure pumpkin or use freshly cooked puree (see how here)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 cups caster sugar
- 4 large eggs
- ½ cup vegetable oil (or use a really healthy oil like flaxseed or olive oil)
- 2 apples, peeled and chopped
Heat oven to 350°F/180°C/Gas mark 4
Grease 2 muffin tins and line with muffin liners if using.
In a mixing bowl, combine the sugar, pumpkin, eggs, and oil.
Beat until blended, then sift in the flour, pumpkin pie spice, salt and baking soda and stir until mixed. Add the peeled and chopped apples and mix gently through.
Spoon into your prepared muffin cases until they are about ¾ full.
Bake for 20 minutes or until a wooden toothpick pushed into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
Cool for a while, or until you can't resist eating them!
