Easy and Delicious

Just made these muffins and they turned out great! Realized I didn't have any buttermilk so I talked to Sherry in the "Live Chat" and she gave me some great tips! I actually used Labna (thick Mediterranean Yogurt/Cheese) instead of the buttermilk, added just a little more pumkin, some extra spices like clove and nutmeg (didn't have ginger) and whole wheat flour instead of white. Delicious!! Even my very picky 3 yr old loved them!!

Awesome muffins

These muffins are great. Quick and easy to make. The second time I made them though, I added 1/4 cup chopped walnuts and 1/4 cup golden raisins - YUM!

Easy and Delicious

Very easy recipe to make. I ate one right out of the oven and I could have eaten every one of them. The cinnamon is not over-powering, would highly recommend.

Nice breakfast treat

My whole family enjoyed these muffins. Great for school lunches. I added walnuts and topped the muffins with a little brown sugar and oatmeal,they were tasty and pretty to present. A keeper.

Good pumpkin muffin recipe

They were very easy to make and pretty good. I think they need more pumpkin though. I also added some nutmeg and a little more cinnamon and ginger to them and it gave it a little extra something. I'll make them again but add more pumpkin to them next time.
