Apple Pumpkin Muffins



Do you ever get stuck in a food rut? Like you feel like you make the same supper or muffins or cookies over and over and over and over again?
 I kinda feel like that.
 I was just stuck in an apple crisp and carrot muffins rut. 
I know, it's not pretty at all. 
As delicious as apple crisp is,
(and  I'll be the first to tell you that!) you just can't serve it every week. 
That's why I am so obsessed with food blogs and recipe websites- I am always on the search for that perfect recipe that will shake everything up. Its fun, keeps everyone on their toes, and yummy too!


 Anyways, this week I made Apple Pumpkin Muffins, and I was pleasantly surprised at how delicious they were. These muffins have the perfect balance of moistness and flavor, and were super easy to make. 
Plus, I love the color of pumpkins, and the smell of cinnamon and nutmeg, so we really got nothing to lose!


Apple Pumpkin Muffins
  • 2 1/2 cups  flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup canned or cooked pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups finely chopped peeled apples

  • Streusel:
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 teaspoons cold butter or margarine

In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, combine the eggs, pumpkin, oil and apples; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. As with all muffins- do not overmix! Fill paper-lined muffin cups 3/4 full. In a small bowl, combine sugar, flour and cinnamon. Cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over batter.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans.



Special thanks to the adorable Nissanel K. for allowing the use of his pumpkin for our photo shoot.

  4. I know I am a bit late, but these were by far the most delicious muffins I have ever tasted. In fact, last Thursday, on Thanksgiving I initially made one batch. When those were eaten I made a second. And then a Third batch for shabbos. This past shabbos I made it again. I think you will be to blame for all the weight gain :-) Thanks again.
