I know that October is generally the season of pumpkin everything, and normally I embrace that whole heartedly. For some reason I’m just not feeling it right now. Maybe it’s because there are so many pumpkin recipes already in circulation. Or perhaps it’s because the weather feels much more like September than October here in Ohio. Either way, when I was musing over what I wanted to bake and share this week apples are where I ended up. Specifically Apple Spice Muffins with Pecan Streusel Topping. I’m not sorry! I promise to deliver some delicious pumpkin recipes in time for Thanksgiving feasts, but for now let’s make muffins!
Soft and flavorful inside with a sweet crunchy topping it’s the perfect fall breakfast muffin. I used a cup and a half of chopped apples but you could easily bump it up to two cups. Shredded apples will also work and save you the work of peeling them. If I’m being honest, I’m tired this week and I love having something already done for breakfast. Fry or boil a couple eggs and it’s a healthy and well rounded meal!
