Pumpkin Muffins

Pumpkin muffins are great for breakfast or a snack any day of the week!  They are so fast and easy to make.

If you are like me and like to make recipes with pumpkin but don’t know what to do with the rest of the pumpkin, you can make these muffins!  You only need 1/2 cup of pumpkin!  You can even freeze the muffins and eat them later.

I love this time of year because you can find canned pumpkin every where!  This is the time I stock up.  I have learned from past years experience that when you see it at the store you probably should stock up because you never know when there will be a shortage.

Serve the muffins warm with butter and honey or grab one on the go.  Either way they will please your taste buds!

Did you know pumpkin is loaded with antioxidant beta carotene?  Our bodies convert beta carotene into Vitamin A which promotes healthy skin and vision.
