Yummy Fall Muffins

A few weeks ago I went to the library and checked out this book. I don't know what I was thinking getting a Christmas book in August, but I am so glad I did. There are SOOOOO many cute ideas and recipies in here that I have checked it out two more times just to try everything. The one recipe that I did was...

 ...these yummy Applesauce Muffins. They have a super yummy topping and they make the house smell oh so good. These are perfect for fall mornings heading out the door for school. They are also a little healthy with applesauce and oat. I also use whole wheat flour mix too for an extra punch.
They are also a hit with the kiddos so that makes it easy. The recipe makes enough for an after school snack too. Landon was too shy, but you can tell by his plate that he kinda likes these little guys.

I made the pumpkin pie recipe from my GBP Christmas cookbook. I think yummy desserts are best served daily... HA!
