Fat Free Pumpkin Muffins

It's fall, I love fall. John and I keep taking random hikes and drives into the country. I mean how could you stay inside when it looks like this out?

Love it.

Fall always brings the need to involve pumpkin into things, who am I kidding, I bake with it all year long. But there is an even stronger pull when the leaves start to fall. So I went back and revisited my old pumpkin muffin recipe, the old one was always hearty and maybe a bit too heavy. This time I have a lighter airier version for you. And with an entire 15oz can of pumpkin to boot.

Bring. It. On.

These pictures are making me so hungry! I can't wait until we have power back so I can turn on the oven and make some of my own pumpkin delights... Until then, these are quite the inspiration.

I'm so glad you liked them! They are a favorite of mine for sure! OO the donut and glaze idea sounds delicious!!
