Who wants an amazing and easy Pumpkin MuffinsRecipe!?! You’ve hit the jackpot with this one! I love baking with pumpkin. Pumpkin makes it so unbelievable moist! When fall hits, I cannot get enough pumpkin in everything I eat or drink especially for breakfast! I am even enjoying my pumpkin flavored coffee with my muffin!
Some call these Pumpkin Spice Muffins while others call the Pumpkin Muffins but I call them pumpkin goodness! If you like the spice part of the muffin, you can add one teaspoon of pumpkin spice to the recipe below when you add the dry ingredients together.
