It’s not really fall until you start using pumpkin somewhere in your cooking and baking!…and even drinking! (don’t worry I have you covered…drink recipes are coming up soon!)

So here you go, the first of several recipes using the homemade pumpkin pie spice I shared with you last week.

These muffins are moist, not too dense and, as muffins usually are, easy to make. I left these nut free, so my girls can bring them to school without worries, however they are great with chopped pecans or walnuts added.
