Perfect Pumpkin Muffins

Not only is it apple picking season, but it’s also pumpkin season! I definitely love to get my fill of apples and pumpkin because the season for both is so short. I will literally put pumpkin in anything too – yogurt, cake, sauces, cereal, muffins, you name it! It’s so so easy, and so so good for you!

For these muffins, the pumpkin adds a beautiful color, as well as moisture. Yes, they have sugar, but pumpkin needs the help as it’s typically pretty bland. If you don’t have pumpkin pie spice, use a combination of cinnamon and nutmeg so the Fall flavors really shine through.

When you make these, be warned — they are delicious! Watch out for sticky fingers. 🙂 Questions? Lemme know in the comments!
