Pumpkin Apple Muffins

Pumpkin Apple Muffins @frugalanticsThese muffins make a great breakfast, snack or dessert.    The fruit and whole wheat flour keeps them feeling slightly less indulgent than a piece of cake.  My husband has taught all of my sons to put butter on all muffins except the huge Costco kind.  So, I am pretty well resigned to the fact that no matter how sweet or savory any muffin I make, the boys will be grabbing a knife to cut them and slather on the butter.  

Pumpkin Apple Muffins @frugalanticsThere is nothing in fall like pumpkin dishes or apple dishes.  Combining the two seemed like a double dose of my favorite season.  I never realized how much I loved Autumn until I moved to a really warm climate.  The onset of cool weather in October is such a blessed relief.  Breaking out the stored boxes of sweaters is like getting a whole new wardrobe.  Being able to bake whenever I feel like it because we like the extra heat from the kitchen is an added bonus.Pumpkin Apple Muffins @frugalantics
