It’s pretty rare for me to ever run out of pumpkin from August to December. But if I did, these muffins just may be the culprit. Not only are they absolutely delicious they are actually quite healthy. I mean if a muffin has carrots and apples in it, I consider that a diet… am I right? Or am I right? haha

So without any more delay, here is your new favorite muffin!!
