Three of my favorite things in a muffin! These Apple Pumpkin French Toast Muffins are healthy, delicious, and prepped in just 15 minutes.
Fall is here and that means it’s time to celebrate all things fall. Like apples and pumpkin. And comforting breakfasts with a warm cup of cocoa or a latte. So, I decided to combine all things fall and yummy breakfast into an easy to make fall muffin recipe. Apple and pumpkin are two must-have fall flavors, and they pair perfectly in these no-sugar-added French toast muffins!
These apple pumpkin muffins actually freeze well too, so if you like to meal-plan like I do, I definitely recommend making a double-batch of these so on those mornings where you are running out of the house and realize no one had breakfast, you can grab one of these muffins and be on your way!
Or feel free to serve them warm with a little drizzle of maple syrup for a hot breakfast treat! Either way you are in for a treat. And the best part is that they truly are simple to make. This muffin recipe has just a few ingredients and comes together in two mixing bowls.
Key Ingredients To Make Apple Pumpkin French Toast Muffins
How to make these Apple Pumpkin French Toast Muffins
First the preheat oven to 375°F.
Spray a 12 medium muffin cups pan (cupcake pan) with some cooking spray. Then break the French bread into small pieces with your hands. If the kids are helping- let them do this part.
In a mixing bowl whisk the eggs, egg whites, milk, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla, and pumpkin puree in a bowl until frothy.
Combine the chopped apples and bread pieces in a separate bowl. Pour the egg mixture on top, stir and let sit for 5 minutes. Press the mixture evenly into the muffin tin.
Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the tops begin to brown and are cooked through. Immediately run a knife around edges of muffins to loosen and remove from muffin tins.
How To Freeze the Pumpkin Muffins
I like wrapping my muffins individually in press n’ seal to help prevent freezer burn before putting them in a freezer bag, but you don’t have to. I do recommend it though. Your apple pumpkin muffins will last in the freezer for up to 3 months. My guess is they won’t last that long though 😉
When you are ready to eat, simply allow your muffin to thaw on the counter or toss it in the microwave for 10 seconds at a time.
If you are keeping your muffins in the refrigerator, they will be good for up to a week. This apple pumpkin French toast muffin recipe makes 12 muffins, so depending on the size of your family, everyone can have one a day for breakfast for a few days. I love easy breakfast recipes!
For a sweeter flavor, top your muffin with a touch of honey or pure maple syrup.
