Muffin Monday - Pumpkin Apple Muffins

Have you ever had the kind of morning where there is just no time for breakfast at all?  Yeah, me too.  One of my new goals is to make a batch of muffins once a week to have on hand for the times where we need to eat breakfast or snacks on the run.  First up is a seasonal recipe that indulges my deep love for pumpkin!

1 1/3 c flour

2/3 c whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp pumpkin spice
3 T applesauce
1/4 c honey
1 egg
1/2 c milk
1/2 c pumpkin puree
1 medium Apple, peeled and grated

Mix all dry ingredients together.  Mix wet ingredients together.  Then mix the dry ingredients with the wet and pour into greased muffin tins.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 10-15 minutes if making mini muffins and 18-20 minutes for full size muffins.


*This is not a super sweet recipe.  Again, I wanted to be able to use it as a relatively healthy breakfast or snack.  If you want to sweeten it up a little bit, I would reccomend adding another 1/4c of sugar or some chocolate chips (like I did for the one above!).

*Edited 10/21 to add: I've linked this up to Family Food Fridays at Get Healthy Cheap.  Check it out to see more healthy family recipes!


  1. Sounds and looks yummy. Thanks for sharing.

    Lets have some fun. Take the test Your Snacks Personality and find out which of these snacks do you prefer? I have taken the test and enjoyed a lot. Hope you too will enjoy it. Have Fun!!

  2. Those muffins look like they rose so high which means more of that nice crunchy top to love.

  3. These look great! I love muffins and making them healthier is always a goal of mine too. The addition of a smashed up banana may be an option to sweeten them up too. :)

    Thanks for linking up at Family Food Fridays, hope to see ya next week.
