Pumpkin Bran Muffins

I went skiing yesterday... yes 60 degrees not a cloud in the sky skiing. Ahhhh it was wonderful... and very tiring haha so when I got home I HAD to bake something to re-energize me! Pumpkin Bran Muffins came to mind....I love these muffins. They are perfect for a snack or an addition to breakfast. Super healthy and super super delicious. I mean who doesn't love pumpkin? Ok probably a lot of people but seriously I'm in love with pumpkin anything :) A half dozen of these were polished off by a certain someone within minutes of them being done. Hope you like them!
