Pumpkin Muffins

Pumpkin Muffins

Amazing rich pumpkin muffins perfect for autumn and winter days. The yellow-orange color the pumpkin puree gives to them makes them look really appetizing. They taste so good that we finished them that evening and the next day I made another round.

Oh, these look delicious! I would love to add a pad of cream cheese in the middle of a warmed muffin! Delish!

Love the addition of the walnuts. They look really light and fluffy.

These look so moist and delicious. Can't wait to try these. I bet that'd be great with just a sprinkling of turbinado sugar and some pepitas, but the crumb topping sounds amazing as well.
