From the blogger: "These applesauce pumpkin muffins are full of nutritious, organic ingredients for a perfect prep-ahead breakfast, an easy addition to lunch boxes, or a delicious fall snack!

"Of course, these pumpkin muffins are also a great grab-and-go snack option! In less than 20 minutes I can pull a warm batch of mini muffins out of the oven and stash them in my freezer for easy breakfasts, snacks, or lunch box treats.
