I first made these muffins around Thanksgiving to bring for our family to enjoy before the wonderful feast ahead of us. They are very easy to put together, and we enjoyed them so much that I made batches around Christmas to give as gifts to coworkers and others. They have a ton of flavors, and thanks to the pumpkin, not much oil/butter is even required.
A big thank you to Jourdan for always posting such great recipes that I must immediately recreate! Hopefully you enjoy these as much as both of our families have. Cheers!
