Pumpkin Crumb Muffins


UUUUUGGGGGHHHH!!! Why do I still have a little Tupperware of pumpkin in my fridge??? I’m so ready to move on! Except, these Pumpkin Muffins turned out so delicious that I have decided it’s not so awful to have pumpkin lolly gagging in your fridge. Not only are these healthier than your average muffin, but the texture is super tender and ooooohhh that crumb topping! These are the perfect breakfast to make for all of the guests you’ll be entertaining this holiday season.


Pumpkin Crumb Muffins


Just look at all of those delicious nooks and crannys that the creamy butter can hide in. I love warm muffins with butter, and a side of fresh fruit. It’s a perfect breakfast and I’m sure that your guests would think so too.


Most of our Christmas mornings were spent at home growing up, but even if we didn’t really have anyone in town, we were still all about making delicious breakfasts, snacks, meals and treats. My mom loved to make cinnamon milk, hot cocoa, homemade donuts, and other wonderful goodies. We loved that we didn’t have to wake up early for school, (I woke up at 4:15 for Seminary. How did I ever do that?!) and we always made snowflakes when we were really little. We were convinced that hanging snow flakes in the windows would bring the snow. Now I live in a place that snows all the time, and I’m totally over it. Maybe I should start having the girls hang suns in the windows.;)


I love how warm and snuggly the holidays feel, and favorite treats shared with loved ones are essential.
