Autumn Gem: Applesauce Pumpkin Muffins

October 7

Who doesn’t love a warm delicious muffin, especially with a great cup of coffee or the perfect savory spread!

What I don’t care for, is the calorie after shock, that goes along with it. I’m infamous for attemping to perfect healthy versions of traditionally, “bad for you foods.” This includes the muffin!

With Fall upon us, it was time to break out the classics; my favorite autumn morning gem…..
