I hate you pumpkin muffin for making me fat;

I hate you pumpkin muffin for making me spend all my money;

I hate you pumpkin muffin for the time I waste thinking about eating you;

I love you... pumpkin muffin... until tomorrow....

If you love pumpkin, this easy muffin recipe is for you. The fall spices blend perfectly with the tart cranberries, sweet apples, and crunchy walnuts. Don't be concerned about the lack of eggs in this recipe. The pumpkin is a great healthy substitute that adds to the overall flavor. Delish!

Note: We tested this recipe using thawed frozen cranberries. The Test Kitchen
