Breads and Muffins / Breakfast

Pumpkin Spice Muffins

 I discovered this recipe a few years ago and brought it to my mother’s for my contribution to Thanksgiving dinner. Once she tasted it, I was immediately informed that I would be bringing this bread every year from then on, and would I mind making it for Christmas too? Thanksgiving is kind of the epitome of fall food, so when friends of ours offered to host a “Fall Flavors” potluck style dinner for our group of friends, I immediately thought of these.

I decided to give them a little bit of a healthy makeover, and make muffins instead of bread for easier portioning of leftovers. They came out just as amazing as the original bread. 🙂

And it’s a double recipe so it makes a ton! You can get two full size loaves, or as much as 32 muffins out of this.

It’s a good thing I wrote this recipe down when I found it originally, because I haven’t been able to find it online since. The ingredient list is kind of long, what with all the spices and whatnot, but it’s actually really easy to throw together. And you’ll only dirty two bowls for mixing. 🙂
