Air Fryer Pumpkin Spice Muffins

It’s super crunchy on the outside and super tender and moist on the inside! And it’s really packed with flavor. I used pumpkin puree but if you don’t have any on hand you can also use applesauce and the result is going to be very similar.

You can also use mashed bananas and play with the spices a bit for some banana bread muffins, in case you are looking for variations.

They are incredibly freezer friendly so you can make a big batch, store them in an air tight container or in a Ziploc bag and to the freezer. Once you are ready to eat them you can thaw on the counter of your kitchen or pop them real quick in the microwave or toaster.
