Pumpkin Apple Muffins – Healthy and Delicious

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. 

Pumpkin apple muffins

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!

Love muffins? Then you must try these pumpkin muffins with orange and poppy seeds.
