Hello!! We are so excited to be here. There are so many wonderful things to cook with in the Autumn months. Apples and carrots, just to name a couple, each have great recipes using them individually as the main ingredients. This recipe combines them though for a moist quick bread like texture in a muffin with a light streusel topping and a delicious taste that is not so super sweet.

Try them for your next holiday brunch! They’re delicious and actually pretty healthy in the mix. Enjoy!!!
