School is back in session and fall is literally right around the corner. Even though the weather here is still hot as all get out, I am in the fall mood. I’m ready for that cool crisp weather, apple cider, hot cocoa, soups, and pumpkin everything!
I decided to combine two of my favorite flavors and go with pumpkin apple muffins. They are moist and have just the right amount of spice to them. This recipe will have you feeling like fall in no time!
