Apple Pumpkin Muffins

What do you get when you mix fall weather with Get Your Chef On cooking challenge?
Apple Pumpkin Muffins!

The secret ingredient this round was applesauce.
 I didn't have a new recipe stirring in my brain, so off to google land I went. 
I came out with these...
Apple Pumpkin Muffins w/ cinnamon cream cheese
The recipe for these simple yet delicious muffins can be found over at Iowa Girl Eats.
I followed her recipe step by step and they turned out amazing.

My favorite part is of course the cinnamon cream cheese spread. Get in my mouth!
This muffin bursts with fall, now if only the weather in California will take note!

I am linking these muffins up for the GYCO Challenge:
