Best Pumpkin Muffins

FullSizeRender (8) Listen folks, these are the best pumpkin muffins for a few reasons:

  1. They taste delicious (which is always important!)
  2. They are EASY to make. Just some canned pumpkin, a couple of other ingredients and DONE!
  3. They are so versatile and you can change them up with different variations, which of course I’ll tell you about.
  4. They are made with whole wheat flour. I love white whole wheat flour. I buy mine at Trader Joe’s and it’s pretty inexpensive there. It has a more mild flavor than regular whole wheat flour but all of the nutritional qualities of regular whole wheat flour.
  5. Since they’re relatively low in sugar, you can eat them as breakfast, brunch, snack, side dish or any time of day, really. I’ll have a couple of these muffins with a hard-boiled egg and call it a delicious breakfast.
  6. Try them and let me know what YOU love about them!

NOW, the recipe!
