I like to make quick desserts, especially those that only have a couple of servings so I don’t go overboard.  Since the holidays are upon us I have been craving pumpkin and wanted to create a dessert muffin that would feature the iconic flavors of the holidays.  These muffins are also great for breakfast!  I know a lot of people prefer not to use a microwave so the good news is that you can still make these muffins…they’ll just take a little longer to make.

    Would love to try this, I love all things pumpkin. But, could I use regular flour? I have coconut flour, but that is lots different to cook with. Thought maybe white whole wheat might work. What do you think?

    I keep checking to see if anyone has posted a comment yet, I like to read what other people say about recipes… but I guess I’ll be the first?! I made this recipe and it is delicious! By far the most moist minute muffin I’ve ever made! I did add extra cinnamon, but that is just my personal preference! Thinking of making another batch! YUM!

    Fantastic recipe! I subbed 2 tbls of Just Like Suger and 6 drops of EZ-Sweets for the sweetener and added 1/8 tsp of cloves. This is a very light and spongy little cake…..I loved it!!
