These are crazy good. I've literally had 2 separate marriage proposals (as a joke, I think...) after friends have tried these. I'm not kidding, it is the best pumpkin muffin you'll ever have and they taste even better the second day.

Combining apples and pumpkin with all the fall spices in one muffin is a marriage made in heaven. The muffins are tender with bits of apple in every bite. The sugary topping bakes perfectly and goes with all the yummy flavors. These are equally good warm or at room temperature. Better than anything you'll find at the coffee shop, these are honestly some of the best muffins we've tried. The Test Kitchen
