Instructions
Pumpkin Seed & Nut Muffins
  1. Preheat oven to 350℉. Line 12 muffin cups with large paper liners. In a small bowl whisk together flour, poppy seeds, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, salt and allspice. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl stir together brown sugar, almond butter and melted butter until smooth. Add eggs one at time, whisking after each. Whisk in buttermilk and vanilla. Stir in grated pumpkin. Add dry ingredients all at once stirring until just combined. Do not over mix. Stir in nuts. Scoop batter evenly into prepared muffins cups (each will take a heaping 1/3 cup of batter). Top each muffin with a generous sprinkle of almond topping. Bake in preheated oven for 20-22 minutes or when a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow to rest in pan for 10 minutes prior to removing muffins to a cooling rack.
Almond Topping
  1. Toss together almonds, melted butter and honey until almonds are coated evenly. Set aside.

Instructions
Bagels
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer whisk together water, yeast, 3 tbsp brown sugar and 1 1/2 cups flour. Cover and allow to ferment for 30 minutes.
  2. Fit mixer with dough hook attachment. To the mixing bowl add 1 cup flour, 1 tsp salt, spices, butter, vanilla and whisk to combine. Knead mixture, adding 1/4 cup of flour at a time, ensuring the flour is absorbed before adding more. Knead and add flour until dough starts to pull away from the side of the bowl, approximately 5-7 minutes. Add pecans and apple, continue to knead until incorporated. Place dough in an oiled bowl, cover and allow to rise until double in size in a warm draft free area.
  3. Preheat oven to 400℉. Fill a large shallow pot with water, add remaining 3 tbsp brown sugar and 1 tsp salt. Bring to a simmer.
  4. Deflate dough by kneading 3-4 times. Divide dough into 10 equal portions. Roll each portion into a smooth ball. Punch a finger through the centre of the dough ball, gently stretch the hole making it approximately 1 1/2"- 2" in diameter (the hole will shrink). Once the water is boiling drop in 3-4 bagels, depending on the size of your pot. Cook for 1 minute on each side. Remove to a wire rack. Continue to boil bagels. Sprinkle each bagel generously with sugar topping. Place bagels on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake in preheated oven for approximately 25 minutes until golden. Remove from oven and allow to cook completely on a wire rack.
Topping
  1. In a small bowl stir together all ingredients.
Recipe Notes

Add enough flour when kneading to be able to handle the dough with bare hands.
