These pumpkin nut muffins are perfect when you are looking for a tasty fall breakfast! They are a great alternative to traditional banana nut muffins and are easy to make.
Move over banana nut muffins, there’s a new kid in town. Today I’m sharing with you my pumpkin nut muffin recipe.
It is perfect for autumn baking projects!
I love making these pumpkin nut muffins. This recipe came about one day when I wanted to make my favorite banana nut muffins but my bananas weren’t ripe enough.
I had the idea to substitute pumpkin and it was the best decision ever.
When these muffins go in the oven, my entire home fills with that delicious pumpkin pie spice smell (make your own pumpkin pie spice mix.)
I then immediately start dreaming about fall, which is my favorite season. I am one of those people that can never get enough pumpkin spice everything.
Yep, I’m the girl who started asking for PSLs at the coffee counter in March. The looks the baristas give me….
Pumpkin Nut Muffins
I use melted butter because there is no need to wait for it to soften; that makes these easy to whip up in the morning. If you have kids to get ready (or… a husband/wife to get ready), you can throw a batch of these in the oven while everyone is brushing their teeth, taking showers, etc.
I bet those pumpkin-spicy wafts of air will get them moving a little faster.
The pumpkin puree makes these muffins incredibly moist; I often skip putting butter on them because you really don’t need it.
Grab a cup of coffee and a muffin and you have the perfect fall breakfast!
