Pinata apples offer a nice balance of sweet and tart in these pumpkin muffins, and Greek yogurt keeps them soft and moist.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Then, peel the apple and slice it into small, quarter-inch size cubes. The small cubes are important so that the batter fits in the mini muffin tray. If you are making regular size muffins, the size of the cubes could be bigger.
  3. Next, combine the pumpkin, eggs, vanilla, yogurt, and butter. Beat on low until mixture is smooth.
  4. Add salt, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and sugar. Mix well.
  5. Finally, add flour and baking soda. Add first 1 1/2 cups of flour and then add in 1/4 of flour at a time to reach the desired batter consistency you want.
  6. Fold the apples into the batter and then spoon batter into your mini muffin tray. Place on the center rack of a pre-heated oven. Bake for 12-15 minutes before checking the muffins.
  7. Once muffins are plump (but still doughy on top), turn the oven dial to broil. This helps brown the top of the muffins. Watch muffins carefully and remove from oven once golden brown on top. To ensure the middle of the muffin is cooked through, stick a fork in the middle of the muffin. Once it comes out clean the muffins are done.
  8. Allow to cool and enjoy with a mug of milk! If you are taking these to share at school or for a festive Halloween party, you might want to package them in treat bags or a serving bowl. Enjoy!
