fall treat — pumpkin muffins

pumpkin muffins!

Fall=pumpkin. Pumpkin bread, pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin seeds, you name it! I love them all.

My mom has been making these delicious pumpkin muffins ever since I can remember, and they are always a specific request from the boy during the fall. They are the perfect way to start your day with a coffee or some juice, and great for a snack as well.

You can cook the bread in a variety of formats, but I prefer the muffin serving size, and that way you can add a fun patterned liner.

I also tried these for the first time with a gluten free flour mix from Red Mill, and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. Chase would probably still prefer the gluten-filled kind, but that didn’t stop him from eating at least two of these a day for the last week!
