Apple cinnamon muffins are the perfect fall breakfast food. You can make them ahead and even freeze them for a really easy breakfast. Wayfair is excited about fall and the fall harvest so they were kind enough to sponsor this post.
I love fall, the trees changing color, the cooler weather, and I especially love decorating for fall. I always struggle to wait until at least September 1st to decorate.
It’s funny because I’m not even that into a lot of the traditional fall colors but I love getting pumpkins and additional fall decor in colors that coordinate with my home.
I’ve been eyeing some white pumpkin bowls from Wayfair, they would work perfectly with a white leaf tray I already have. They also have a glass pumpkin in a pale blue that would match my bedroom so well. I’ve been spending a fair amount of time browsing fall decorations on Wayfair in bed each night, not going to lie I’m obsessed.
The other thing I love about fall is comfort food. Hot summer days don’t make me want to make soup or even cook that much at all. We end up eating lighter meals and grilling a lot. Which is great, I love it and look forward to it each year but I’m ready for the soup and comfort food.
I’m also ready for the fall produce. Not a big pumpkin fan but I love apples, pears, cranberries, grapes and so many other delicious fruits and veggies.
I’m excited that apples are now in season, they are one of my favorite fruits. Often for lunch, I’ll have an apple and some sunflower seed butter. Super simple but very delicious, especially when apples are fresh and in season.
Apples are also amazing with cinnamon. Apple cinnamon oatmeal is a fall favorite of mine. The one problem is I’m not a morning person so make ahead breakfasts work better for me.
I came up with a great solution to this problem, apple cinnamon muffins. The same great flavor but I can make them ahead of time. They even freeze well so you can make a couple batches at once. I also recommend using a stainless steel muffin pan, it’s safer than the Teflon pans.
