I adore just about anything pumpkin and these muffins are a staple in our house. I make them at least twice a week because my family loves them that much. They are super moist, have a wonderful cinnamon-y, pumpkin-y flavor to them and give the ones at Panera a run for their money! You can also easily make this into pumpkin bread. I often make these in mini muffin form for my toddler because they bake up so quickly and they’re the perfect size for little fingers. Enjoy!
