Introduction: Easy Apple Pie Muffins

These apple pie muffins are made with nine ingredients, plus a pecan crumble to take it up a notch.

Step 1:

Baking is on my priority list these last few weeks. For this recipe, I couldn’t decide if I wanted to go with peaches or apples. Apples won because hey it’s apple season. This recipe comes together in under an hour. That includes clean up! Unless of course, you’re someone who is easily distracted, it might take longer. I get that way sometimes. My favorite guy just told me how I can work in chaos and somehow it works.
