We may only be in the dog days of summer – but I am excited for the fall and everything that it brings! Cooler temperatures, crisp leaves, and apple flavors galore!

Pumpkin spice may be the trendiest thing – but in my opinion – apple reigns supreme.

Though, I do love Twinings of London’s Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea. One of my favorite tea flavors!

Try these apple muffins and let me know what you think!

Enjoy and happy baking! ?
