Pumpkin Muffies

It’s week four of the pumpkin craziness and the fun is nearly halfway over. So far I have shared recipes for New England Pumpkin Cake, Pumpkin Turnovers and Pumpkin Spice Muddy Buddies. Russ is feeling a bit over the pumpkin pandemonium, but the girls and I feel like we are just getting started! I love that they are just as obsessed as I am. He says I’ve brain washed them, but I am guessing it has something to do with genetics.
 
 
For week four I decided to do a straight up breakfast dish, pumpkin muffies. Muffies are essentially a stump-less muffin. Top of the muffin to you! (Any Seinfeld fans out there?!) Even though I would classify them as something to eat for breakfast, they make the perfect addition to an afternoon cup of coffee as well.

Muffies require minimal ingredients, hardly any time and they can be varied to include your favorite kind of chips or nuts.

A super easy "stumpless" muffin. So easy to mix up and there are so many great ways to mix up this recipe.
 
My favorite way to enjoy these muffies is with some mini chocolate chips mixed in.
Be sure to give them a try soon!
