In case you hadn’t noticed, fall is upon us. I mentioned in my last post how fall is my all-time favorite season and promised to talk more about it. With the weather being so crisp and fresh lately, I have been inspired to create fall themed foods. I love when the air is cool, the smell of leaves rides on the wind, and then I bite into/drink something that is perfectly warm and cozy feeling. Fall is also notoriously known for being apple and pumpkin season. It’s around this time that the pumpkin spice latte comes back into every coffee shop imaginable and caramel apple flavored everything is on the shelves of all grocery stores. Who couldn’t be happy at a time like this? There’s always room for more happiness though, so I’ve brought to you a recipe that is sure to make you smile.
One of my favorite food bloggers recently put up a picture of these amazing looking muffins filled with cinnamon-sugary goodness and I knew I had to recreate them. With increasing food allergies among friends, family, and coworkers and my own healthy eating habits, I find that I usually don’t end up making recipes the way they are written. More often than not, I have to spend a little time thinking about which ingredients can be swapped for healthier alternatives without sacrificing the taste or quality of the end product. In this case, the recipe I came up with didn’t keep many of the original ingredients at all. However, they still came out pretty amazing. Here is a link to the original recipe, and below you can find the recipe I ended up creating.
