Pumpkin Apple Muffins

Pumpkin Apple Muffins

I was enjoying my last piece of pumpkin banana bread the other day, and let me tell you – I was savoring that slice!  I just kept thinking, “wow, I need to bake more of this!”  Of course, going a day without pumpkin spice in October is slightly disappointing, and so is a day without apple-cinnamon goodness.  So, I decided to bring the flavors together, and I whipped up a batch of these pumpkin apple muffins the next morning!  Moist and spectacularly spiced, I just had to tip my head back and let out a big “mmhmmmm” when I took the first bite!
