Happy autumn everyone!
I get so excited every September and try to start the fall season with at least a couple of pumpkin spice recipes. I have to admit, although I love pumpkin, I tend to experiment more with pumpkin spice alone. It is so delicious and can be used to make many dishes warm and flavorful. My favorite pumpkin spice recipes are more breakfasty….if that’s a word 🙂 The other day, I was trying to decide what to put pumpkin pie spice in next, and I started thinking about muffins.
I have had pumpkin muffins and they are good, but again I like to experiment without the pumpkin 🙂 I used quite a bit of pumpkin spice in these muffins, so you can really taste the beautiful flavors. They are incredibly flavorful and leave a sweet pumpkin spice taste in your mouth, which is both pleasing and dangerous. Dangerous, because you want just one more bite. These muffins had trouble making it into my photo, because we kept going back for more. I hope you enjoy them and have a wonderful fall season!
