I couldn't let fall pass me by without jumping on the pumpkin muffin bandwagon. I've seen so many blogs featuring pumpkin muffins and breads that it just put me in the mood to start experimenting with pumpkin recipes myself. Plus, I was heading out of town for the weekend to visit my husband who's working out of state. I felt like I couldn't go empty-handed. These muffins had just the right amount of sweetness for him and are perfect for breakfast or a snack.
