Pumpkin Spice Muffins {Recipe}

Pumpkin Muffins

As some of you may recall, I am a muffinaholic!!   I am totally addicted to making muffins and will often make them several times a week!  {I’m also addicted to coffee…so I’m guessing these are companion addictions..lol}

As it is the Canadian Thanksgiving week-end I thought I would share this delicious recipe with you.  I made them earlier in the week…I’m going to call that a trial run as I’m also going to make them tomorrow morning, they are that good!!

I hope you enjoy these muffins and wishing everyone a happy and safe Thanksgiving!

    I have been using another recipe but I think this looks scrumptious and will give it a try!

  2. Hi…

    just double checking, by “canned PURE pumpkin” you mean canned pumpkin flesh/meat as opposed to puree?


    • Hi Wayne, correct by pure I mean canned flesh/meat with nothing added. {NOT a canned pie filling} Good luck with them, they’re delicious!

  3. pinned it for later! thanks!

    MMMM they sound delicious Monica. I’ll certainly be giving them a try.

    Thanks so much

  5. This looks so delicious and would go so well with the Reunion Island Pumpkins Spice coffee. I’ve already copied the recipe, but can’t imagine mine turning out as good as this one looks.
