Bite sized Pumpkin Donut Muffins! Roll in butter and cinnamon/sugar! These donut muffins freeze really well too!
I wasn’t sure if these qualify as donuts or muffins. So let’s call them both. They remind me of my favorite cinnamon sugar muffins. Only, with a pumpkin twist!
Life has been pretty crazy around here. It seems like homework in our house has multiplied by 100. And of course, you may remember me saying this before, I’m not capable to help.
I think of myself as a fairly educated person, I have a college degree as a registered nurse. I learned all the math and sciences necessary. But for the life of me I can’t seem to remember how to best help with 4th grade math. Or 6th grade government. Or freshman language arts (they read books I never had to read!) or 11th grade algrebra.
Now, spelling I can do. But did you know that our school doesn’t have spelling tests like when I was a kid? They get words to study and learn, but they have to learn the meaning of them! And use them in sentences! Haha, poor kids. I only had to memorize how to spell them. It’s no wonder I’m of no use to my children.
So instead, I provide the nutrition they need. (see the irony here? I’m a dessert blogger….)
No really. These pumpkin donuts are packed with the healthy orange stuff. Yes, they are rolled in butter. Yes, I then rolled them in cinnamon and sugar. But c’mon, they taste amazing!!
These pumpkin donut muffins freeze really well too! I like to bake them, roll them and stick them in a ziploc bag. Label, freeze and save for another day! ENJOY.
