Have you tried these pumpkin spice muffins yet?
Okay, first I need to admit something. I’m not actually a huge fan of pumpkin. Every year I try to make a few pumpkin-themed recipes solely because most everyone else loves the flavor! I’m not sure why, but I’d choose something apple-themed any day over pumpkin in the fall.
Just my opinion, but if you do happen to love pumpkin, then this recipe is a great one for you to try out. It includes minimal ingredients, is easy to make, and is a real crowd pleaser. As always, please reach out if you have any questions or comments about the recipe!
