Perfect Pumpkin Muffins

These are the Perfect Pumpkin Muffins – no joke! And everyone loves pumpkin this time of year, right?!  You see pumpkin drinks, cookies, cakes, etc.  I’ve even seen pumpkin potato chips!  Really, I’m not joking.  I think that sounds disgusting, but to each his own.

When I weighed nearly 300 lbs I would eat the popular brand of packaged muffins and think I was eating healthy because after all, it was a muffin.  Little did I know then that those muffins have 13.5 teaspoons of sugar and 660 calories!  I’m not kidding!

This is my pumpkin creation to add to the mix, but unlike all of the above, you won’t find chemical crud in these muffins.  They are healthy and amazing.  I enjoy all types of muffins, but these are my go-to favorites, because they are the PERFECT Pumpkin Muffin.  Yummy!

You are going to want to PIN these for later!

Now you could bake a pumpkin and make your puree naturally, but I didn’t so don’t judge me.  I used canned, however it was organic.  You do whatever works for you.

Let’s get to the good stuff!

I like to have these as a healthy snack with some almond milk or as a quick breakfast (they freeze beautifully) with a protein shake.

    I made these and they are soooo yummy. I had 72 % cacao chocolate chunks and pushed a couple into the top of the mini muffing before baking. So Good.
