- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp ground flax

Preheat the oven to 350°F / 180°C. Prepare muffin tray(s) by lightly greasing the pan, or lining with reusable silicone muffin cups.
If working with fresh pumpkin puree, in a large bowl, mash the pumpkin until smooth.
Stir in apple, milk, oil, maple syrup, vanilla, ground flax and sugar until well combined. Add baking soda, baking powder, pumpkin spices and salt.
Stir the flour, a little at a time, until all ingredients are well incorporated. Do not over mix.
Spoon batter into your muffin trays. Add optional toppings.
Bake muffins for 30 to 40 minutes, checking occasionally. To check if muffins are cooked throughout, slide a butter knife into one of the muffins. It the knife comes out clean, they are fully baked.
