Muffin Monday ~ Morning Glory Muffins

Is it just me or does a muffin seem healthier?  I could eat a triple chocolate chip muffin and feel like I just had a breakfast of champions, but I would never eat a piece of chocolate cake and think that.  As you know I love me a good muffin!  Or two.

A muffin can be what ever you want it to be wrapped up in one pretty little parchment paper package.  These muffins are a combo of two of my favorites pumpkin bread and carrot cake.  I thought why not let these beauties collide.  Although I refrained from topping them with cream cheese frosting, I still think that it would be really good.  Actually these muffins are so moist and delicious I think the frosting might mask the comfortingly refreshing flavors of apple, orange, and ginger…oh and don’t forget the nutmeg.  Do what you want, but I think I’ll just take my Morning Glory Muffin naked….in all it’s glory.
