Does anything sound more fall themed than Cinnamon Apple Pumpkin Pecan muffins? I mean seriously, cinnamon, apple, pumpkin and pecan? That sums up all my diet until around December…. then I shift to chocolate and candy canes!

 

 

 

These bit sized muffins have the consistency of zucchini bread, mixed with a touch of of a cinnamon roll sweetness. Pair these with some warm apple cider and you have yourself the perfect autumn mid afternoon treat!

Now sit back, relax and watch “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown”.
