Pumpkin Month Recipes Volume 1
Pumpkin Crumb Muffins with Maple Icing

The month of October is National Pumpkin Month! And I seriously love all things pumpkin. Which is why I am dedicating a blog post a day to share a yummy pumpkin recipe. The first one I am sharing is for pumpkin crumb muffins. These are TO DIE FOR! I mean, they are the most delicious muffins I have ever had and they taste just like a bite of fall would taste.


Makes 15 muffins.

1 tsp baking soda

2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

1/2 brown sugar

1  1/2 cups pumpkin puree

2 large eggs

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

6 tbsp melted butter


Maple Icing:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a muffin pan, or use liners.
