Pumpkin Muffins


While I am taking care of my family I have a few recipes in reserve that are family favorites. I hope you enjoy.

You may already know I am NOT a fan of the pumpkin spice overload. I think it is way overdone and I especially don’t like the artificial pumpkin taste and smell in many items. Don’t get me wrong I love pumpkin just not the over saturation of fake pumpkin.

Verdict:

These muffins were super moist and delicious. This recipe made 15 large muffins. They were perfect for breakfast and on the run snacks.

  1. We are UK based and as a result we don’t get a lot of pre prepared pumpkin goodies. Will test this out when we get back from LA in a couple of weeks!

        Well that is great to hear that she is home…nothing like being at your own home… maybe being at home she can get some rest without the techs coming in her room every time to get blood or vitals …you can never really rest in a hospital lolol…
        I hope you get good answers on Tuesday for all…

  4. I have to say there was a time i was all about the pumpkin flavored craze. But, i have to say i have grown out of it. Pumpkin muffins and of course pie are my still my weakness.

      It is that plastic tasting artificial taste that gets me. I love the fresh taste of pumpkin pie and muffins.

  9. Looking forward to trying them. Would it still turn out the same with vegetable oil instead of canola oil?

      Yes, I just usually use canola but they will be very similar. Hope you like them!
