Autumn Muffins

Rainy day + Autumn temps + that cozy feeling caused by hoodies, blankets, and a hot beverage has got me feeling like:

I originally made these delights a few weeks ago and they left my home smelling like an apple pumpkin chai. *sigh* It was ahhhmazingggg!! I wish my home could smell like that for always. In fact, someone should make a candle that smells this good! And then, I would buy all the candles!!

Baker’s Notes:
These muffins are delicious!!! I couldn’t wait to dig in and they barely cooled on the wire rack for all of a minute before I was taste- testing! 🙂 The spice to sweet ratio was on point and I LOVED the apple chunks; they took this muffin to a whole new, heartier level!

Thank you Baked by Rachel for posting this recipe on your site!! I’m all too excited to make these again and again and again. 🙂
