I’ve been so excited this week to use my homemade pumpkin puree that I just whipped up. I’ve been so surprised how many treats I’ve been able to make with just one small pumpkin!

So, this morning I set out to find a healthy pumpkin muffin that my kids would love and I found it! Of course, I had to make a few revisions (that’s just my style) and let me tell you….. Mmmmm. These beauties are full of good for you ingredients! I plan to put them in my kiddo’s lunch boxes this week.
