Apple Pecan Pumpkin Muffins

I have been itching to dig into the big box of apples I brought home from my parents farm a few weeks ago but unseasonably warm weather has stopped me from doing anything productive or fall-like in the kitchen.  The weather today took a tiny (as in it is not above 25 degrees) turn towards fall, so I decided to turn on the oven and peel some apples.  I am glad that I did!!  As I took my first bite of these muffins that embody fall, I may have cooled off a few degrees!  The kids really enjoyed these too, although I did skip the pecans in theirs as G's school is nut free.

Image by me, can't you tell?
