Pumpkin Apple Muffins

During our apple picking trip we got about 20lbs of apples and I've been using them in just about everything. I made these great pumpkin apple muffins from a recipe I modified from Saturday Nights.



Ingredients:
1 15 oz can of pumpkin puree (DO NOT use Pumpkin Pie filling)
2 cups of diced red apples
4 tbsp of butter
1 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour 
1 tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of baking soda
1/2 cup of brown sugar 
1/2 cup of granulated sugar 
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (I make my own mix using the recipe from My Baking Addiction)
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1 egg
 Toppings:
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/3 cup of flour
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
3 tbsp of cold butter
Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 
Cream the butter, sugar and vanilla. Add the egg and blend for 2 minutes on medium. Add the pumpkin puree, In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and pumpkin pie spice. Slowly combine the dry ingrediants. Fold in Apples. 
In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients for the toppings. I find that clean hands gives you the best texture. Scoop muffin mixture into lined muffin tins and top with brown sugar crumble. Put in oven for 20 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. 

These are delicious and the kids ate them up!
