Here is yet another pumpkin recipe! I just love muffins. They make me feel like I am eating cake for breakfast. 🙂 Growing up in Boston, we had a Dunkin Donuts on every corner. One of the things I loved there was the pumpkin muffins. Then one day I looked up the nutrition facts. They have 600 calories and 26 grams of fat. Ouch! These muffins do not so it’s okay to eat more than one!
Meadow and I ate one as soon as they came out of the oven. Yum!
