    Pumpkin Apple Muffins

    Servings: 12 large muffins


    • Prep Time: 35 mins
    • Cook Time: 25 mins
    • Total Time: 1 hours 0 mins


  • 1 ½ cups Valley Kitchen gluten free all purpose flour
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • ½ cup oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree, pure
  • 1 cup apples, pealed and chopped
  • Instructions

    1. Preheat oven to 350 F
    2. Lightly oil 12 non-stick muffin tins or 30 mini muffin tins.
    3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the Valley Kitchen all purpose flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Mix to blend.
    4. Add the oil, eggs, pumpkin and chopped apple.
    5. Mix for 1 to 2 minutes until the batter ingredients are well blended. You can mix by hand or by counter top mixer. We prefer the mixer as this method cuts the apples into smaller pieces and blend the bits throughout the batter more evenly.
    6. Using a scoop, fill each muffin cup level full.
    7. Bake in the pre-heated oven for 25 to 27 minutes; minis bake for 15 minutes.
    8. Cool and top with a sprinkling of icing sugar. A subtle reminder that winter is coming soon!
