Pumpkin Apple Muffins

Oct 18

I heart fall.  I love everything about it– mostly, I like baking with apples and pumpkin!  This is one of my favorite dessert recipes of my mom’s, and I’m so excited to share it (and also adapted to make it a little healthier).  I eat these muffins for breakfast, snacks, dessert, and everything in between.  I actually try to give them away, so I don’t eat them all :)

Pumpkin Apple Muffins


  • 1.5 cups whole wheat flout
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tbs pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups apple, peeled, cored, and sliced into small chunks
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Add muffin liners to muffin tins (about 18).
Combine dry ingredients.  Add eggs, pumpkin, and oil.  Stir until moist, and stir in apples. 
Spoon mixture into muffin tins.  Bake 35-40 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

    Bursting with fall goodness! I always have to give away my pumpkin muffins too. Because I could easily eat the whole batch! Thank you for sharing!

    Love these! They look delicious, and what is better than fall in muffin form?

    I don’t know if I missed an ingredient or what, but this was awfully dry when I finished mixing the ingredients. I added about 1/3 cup of Greek yogurt and they turned out beautifully. I’d imagine they would have been pretty dry without the yogurt though. :/

    Otherwise, this was tasty and perfect for fall (and for my preschooler’s apple unit!)

      Hi Kathleen- I’m sorry the batter was a little dry. I double checked the recipe and it was the right ingredients. The batter for me is a little thicker but sticky to the touch. I’m glad the addition of Greek yogurt made it the perfect consistency for you! Thanks for the comment!

        Thanks! I must have misread something the first time because I made them again tonight and they were perfect. I think I might have only done 1/4 cup of oil. That would explain things!

          So glad you tried them again :)

    It’s genuinely very difficult in this active life to listen news on TV, so I simply use web for that purpose, and
    obtain the hottest information.
