Pumpkin-Apple Muffins

What better way to start a perfect autumn Saturday than with an appropriate fall-themed breakfast?! I've been doing a lot of apple coffee cakes for breakfast on Saturday's, so we decided to switch it up and do muffins this week. I had a can of pumpkin burning a hole in my cupboard, so these Pumpkin-Apple muffins were perfect! I also realized this morning that I only have a 6-cup muffin tin!? Weird. I never noticed before! So I made two batches of 6 for us and I used the rest of the batter to make mini-muffins for refreshments at church tomorrow.

I only did a couple things "different" to this recipe. It calls for 1 tbsp. pumpkin spice, which I did not have. So I used this easy substitution:

1 tsp. pumpkin spice =

  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/8 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp. ground cloves
Remember there are 3 tsp. in a tablespoon, so you should triple each of the measurments to get the tablespoon. Also, I added oats into the streusel topping. These came out wonderful and delicious and will definitely be made again.


  1. oh yum!!! :) i wanna come over.

  2. These sound awesome. I just printed out the recipe for myself to try this week! I've been making big batches of pumpkin pancakes (recipe at, because for some reason they're the best pancakes I've ever had...really light and fluffy and soft, and perfect with maple syrup.

  3. What would we do without! What a wonderful site!!
