Healthy Pumpkin Muffins

Pumpkin Muffins cooling rack

So maybe it’s become an obsession. But I’m pretty darn in love with pumpkin about now. The one thing that makes the cool crisp weather better are these healthy pumpkin muffins with a cup of hot coffee.

Simple to make, tasty, and a favorite amongst my playgroup, these muffins really hit the spot.

I drizzled a simple mix of powdered sugar, milk, and pumpkin pie spice over the top for a little extra sweetness. It definitely made the muffins tastier.
