Pumpkin Apple Muffins
Servings: About 16 muffins
Preparation time about 10 minutes plus baking
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
2 cups sugar
1 cup pureed pumpkin
½ cup canola oil
1 medium apple, peeled and finely diced (about cup)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Prepare a muffin pan by lining with paper cups or coating with vegetable oil spray.
In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl whisk together the sugar, pureed pumpkin, eggs and oil until well blended.
Stir in the dry ingredients.
Stir in the apple pieces.
Pour the batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling about 2/3 full.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Cool on a rack. Sprinkle the muffins with confectioners’ sugar.
