Happy Monday friends! How was your weekend? Hope you had a great one. We had a perfect fall weekend with these pumpkin spice carrot muffins for breakfast and finally went apple picking!

Apple picking is one of my favorite fall activities and now that Elliott is an overactive toddler, we go to orchards that have more kid-friendly activities. He loves running around the orchard, grabbing apples from the trees and going on the hay ride. It was lots of fun and now I have apples to last us lifetime. I’ve already made this caramel apple pie and this week I am making my favorite apple cardamon crisp recipe and some apple sauce. Do you have any other apple recipe suggestions to use up my loot?

But enough with the apples, let’s focus on these pumpkin spice carrot muffins. I whipped these up the first time a few weeks ago using the seasonal Krusteaz Pumpkin Spice Muffin Mix. I wanted to add in some more heartiness to the wonderfully spiced muffins so I threw in a cup of carrots and some walnuts. I love streusel toppings on bakery muffins and had to add some here too. I was very happy with the resulting muffins that I made another batch and froze them for quick breakfasts.

These muffins are perfect for fall mornings with a cup of coffee, to hand to the kids as they get on the bus or for a quick afternoon snack before you head out to your favorite fall activity. Make them soon and enjoy the wonders of soft, moist, hearty pumpkin spice muffins!
