I had this idea in my head to make muffins that were so loaded with apple that you could only see apple with a little batter. I made this idea come true with these pumpkin apple muffins. When making these, don’t be concerned that it looks like there is too much apple. That’s the idea for these muffins, that you can’t have enough apple in each bite.

- ¾ cup brown sugar
- 1½ cups low fat buttermilk

- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a muffin pan.
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together egg, brown sugar , buttermilk, melted butter, pumpkin puree, and vanilla, until combined.
