Pumpkin season is here! It’s the best season of the year, if you ask me. And there’s no better way to celebrate than with one (or three) of these amazing Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Muffins. They’re light, moist, and flavorful.
Most recipes call for canned pumpkin puree– this one does too. Make sure it’s 100% pumpkin– sometimes they’ll sneak some additives or fillers in there. You can also make your own pumpkin puree if you want. Here’s a handy dandy guide if you’re so inclined.
Okay, let’s talk through the recipe.
We’ve made lots of muffins over the years. Partly because they’re so tasty, and partly because they’re so easy to make. Mix the dry ingredients, mix the wet ingredients, and mix them together!
Speaking of ingredients, we’re using our Fresh Churned Cinnamon Brown Sugar Honey Butter in this recipe. It adds an even better flavor to the pumpkin, and keeps the muffins moist.
What really sets these muffins apart is the topping! It’s not complicated– just cinnamon and sugar. Put it on top of the muffins before putting them in the oven. It will bake into the top and add a sugary crunch.
Make the most out of pumpkin season! Enjoy!
