Oh yeah, it’s pumpkin time!
Be honest with me – pumpkin: love it or hate it??
Me? I love it. I love the spicy pumpkin flavors, the moistness that it brings to baked goods, all while being lower in fat and calories. But really though, pumpkin mostly just reminds me of fall.
It was so hot today here in So Cal, it definitely does NOT feel like fall.
But none of that matters when I’m baking some yummy pumpkin muffins in my kitchen. Nope. Just another gorgeous, crispy fall day. 🙂
I’ve never had better pumpkin muffins than these. They’re soft, moist, flavorful, and so so easy. My boys love any kind of mini muffin because they’re just the right size. Perfect to grab for a quick snack or fast breakfast.
