Are you more of a pumpkin or apple person when it comes to fall? I am one thousand percent an apple person. These caramel apple oat muffins turned out amazing and are so simple to make. They are a healthier take on your typical caramel apple but that does not mean they don't taste as good.

These will hopefully inspire you to go to a pumpkin patch or apple picking or host a pumpkin carving party. They taste exactly like Fall! Feel free to double or triple the batch to have a stash in your freezer for snacking.

    Theses seem more like a dessert/snack bar than a muffin. There’s no flour and they don’t really rise at all. The only “muffin” like quality is that they were baked in a muffin tin.
