Here is a quick recipe for some pumpkin muffins in case you are pumpkin obsessed like I am. I suggest pairing these with a homemade pumpkin spice latte and enjoying every moment of the fall (my favorite season, of course!)
The pecans and cinnamon chips make these muffins pretty irresistible. They are also super moist (which means they can turn soggy), so I suggest keeping them covered with a kitchen towel instead of sealing them up to store them.
You can substitute 1 tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice for all of the other spices in this recipe if you happen to have it on hand. And of course I had a little helper in the kitchen, who also helped herself to another muffin while I was trying to photograph them.
Busted! A girl after my own heart, really.
