Creating these Easy Pumpkin Muffins

Fall is upon us which means Fall baking and pumpkin spice fills the air!

These muffins are so pretty & delicious on their own with cinnamon sugar sprinkled on top. No need for a glaze of frosting to finish them off.

BUT I do also love this recipe with a cheesecake cream swirled on top from time to time. (recipe is below).

They are perfectly sweet and fluffy and have a nice boost of protein from the yogurt.

If you’re gluten free or thinking you want a muffin recipe with chocolate in it, you’ll love my flourless pumpkin muffins!

Preheat your oven to 325°F and spray a 12 cup muffin pan or cupcake tin with non-stick baking spray.

Add the pumpkin yogurt mixture into the dry ingredients until fully incorporated.

Scoop batter into the prepared muffin tin. Sprinkle each muffin top with a little bit of the cinnamon sugar mixture and bake for 20 minutes. Insert a toothpick in the center of them to be sure they are done. Toothpick should come out clean and muffin tops will be fluffy!

Notes

To make these with a cheesecake swirl on top:
Follow the same steps as above, but prior to baking make this frosting to swirl in on top! Beat 8 oz. of softened cream cheese in a large bowl until smooth, add in 2 Tbsp. sugar, 1 egg and 1 tsp. vanilla extract and beat until creamy smooth.

  1. YES! I’m so ready for pumpkin season. These muffins were PERFECT. I used part whole wheat flour, and cut down on the sugar a bit, and they came out PERFECT!

  2. These muffins sounds like the perfect muffins to wake up to on fall mornings. I can just imagine the warm spices scenting the kitchen as these bake!
