Fall Breakfast Muffins

As I rummaged through the refrigerator Saturday morning, looking for a little inspiration, the apples and carrots caught my eye. (I have mentioned more than once that I love apples, especially at this time of year when you can pick them fresh at the local farms.) I was craving something sweet. So, decided I would bake a delicious morning treat inspired by the season. We hope you enjoy these delicious fall breakfast muffins!
