Are you aching to indulge in seasonal treats, but don't want something overly sweet? Look no further, friends! Here is a delectable, uber moist muffin that's chock-full of flavors.
No exaggeration. I dislike bland foods. I'm a pro-seasoning kind of gal.
So, when I adapted this recipe, which had numerous comments about how the muffins needed more flavor, the first thing I did was increase the pumpkin pie spice and sprinkle in a bit of extra cinnamon. Perfection!
I fondly call these treats "fall in a muffin". Cause that's what they are.
Taking one whiff of the muffin's spicy aroma is equivalent to a sudsy bath, a tight embrace, a gossamer knit sweater, comfy slippers, and a lick or two from your favorite kitten or puppy.
Did I mention they were moistest muffins I've ever eaten? How'd I achieve that? A mixture of pumpkin puree, and unsweetened applesauce. No need for oil when you can use these two!
Although if you want to get your butter on, I totally understand.
Especially if you love baked goods with fresh fruit like these peaches and cream muffins.
Aaaaand, if you're vegan, simply replace each egg with 1/4 cup of mashed ripened banana. I almost did this but decided at the last second to try the egg method, assuming the banana would overpower the pumpkin or apple.
Who knows, though, the flavors might mesh into a hybrid even-more-super-awesome muffin. Please let me know if you try this!
I'd like to hear from YOU!
Is there one particular spice or food that screams "fall" to you?
