It’s time for another pumpkin recipe! This beautiful fall weather is inspiring me to get creative and bake warm and yummy food. These muffins. Oh these muffins. I think you will want to make these. Like right now. As these were baking, my house was filled with delicious smells of warm spices. So comforting. These pumpkin muffins have fiber and beta-carotene, but aside from being healthy, they taste divine! These muffins are tender, moist, and spiced just right. These would be delicious with a cup of afternoon tea. I think these might be my new favorite! I’m savoring each bite. Swoon…
