I’m slightly excited to be sharing pumpkin recipes again on the blog. I apologize if you are like my husband and don’t care for pumpkin. In that case, go check out some Oreos, peanut butter, and cheese.

If you’re here and as excited about pumpkin as I am, then let’s talk muffins.

These are big, beautiful, easy to make PUMPKIN muffins. They are so moist you hardly even need the streusel or glaze! I actually kept the glaze in a separate pitcher to be added on an as-needed basis. A couple of my kids aren’t big frosting fans. Which is usually fine with me, because I get to eat the big piles of frosting left on their plates! But with these muffins, it’s just as easy to keep the glaze off and add when desired.

And the toffee bits, you’ll be amazed how delicious the pairing of pumpkin, toffee and maple tastes! Trust me!

These muffins are also great to keep in the freezer. I freeze them after cooling completely. After thawing the muffins, I make the fresh glaze and drizzle it on! YUM. You can also warm up the muffins too, which is wonderful!

Don’t worry, once pumpkin season is over you will be bombarded with peppermint and eggnog! Are you ready for this???
