Apple Pumpkin Harvest
This yummy fall bird muffin is healthy and delicious.
Apple Pumpkin Harvest Muffins:
1 package of any Bird Bread Mix
1 large apple chopped into small pieces
**(peel apple & remove seeds before chopping)
1 16 ounce can 100% pure pumpkin
2 large eggs
1 cup water (or can use unsweetened apple juice)
1/2 extra cup water (optional)
2 tablespoons olive oil or Red Palm Oil
paper cupcake or muffin liners
In large mixing bowl pour the package of Bird Bread. Add the 2 eggs and oil and stir.
Add can of pumpkin to mixture and mix well.
Chop up the apple into small pieces. We use our food processor for just a few seconds for quick small pieces. You just need to cut apples into smaller pieces so they are distributed through the muffins more evenly.
Add apple pieces to mixture and stir well.
Add water or juice to mix until mixture is blended well. Although the pumpkin will add some moisture to the mixture, the apples will soak up some of moisture. Add enough water to make a cupcake-batter consistency. (The thicker the mixture, the longer it will need to bake).
Pour mixture into mini muffin or cupcake pans and bake at 350 degrees for approximately 25 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. Oven temperatures can vary so be sure muffins are done.
Thoroughly cool muffins before serving to your bird.
Cooked muffins can be placed into freezer bags and removed daily for a fun treat each day until gone.
Use fall or Halloween cupcake/muffin paper baking cup holders to add extra fun for your bird. Hand your bird the complete muffin and watch him or her peel away the muffin paper and relish the yummy fall muffin inside.
