My children’s eyes light up when they discover that pumpkin muffins are for breakfast. They absolutely love them. And yes, they are pretty tasty- moist, slightly sweet, and hinting with flavors like cinnamon, ginger and cloves- classic pumpkin companions!
I posted my original recipe for these favorite Pumpkin Muffins of ours a while back. Since then, however, I have cleaned them up a bit by drastically reducing the sugar (originally 3/4 cup white sugar – now down to 1/4 cup of pure maple syrup) and using healthier “oils and fats”- real butter and coconut oil- instead of canola oil. The kids can’t tell the difference, and I am much happier. The muffins taste just as delicious, if not better!
