These Pumpkin Apple Muffins are so moist and delicious! Pumpkin muffins packed with fresh Granny Smith apples, pumpkin pie spice and sprinkled with homemade streusel topping.
Pumpkin Muffins are a family favorite recipe and the combination of pumpkin and apple is so perfect for fall. I used Granny Smith apples in this recipe. They bake up so well, and the tartness of the apple pairs well with the sweet pumpkin muffin.
Start by preparing the muffin pans and the muffin batter.
Use a standard sized ice cream scoop to measure muffin batter into muffin liners.
Then sprinkle with streusel topping.
Muffins are ready when they spring back lightly to the touch.
These pumpkin apple muffins smell so good when they are baking, and are so moist they are even better the next day!
