Pumpkin Spice Muffins


I have a love-hate relationship with tradition. Everything lining the store shelves telling me exactly what I should buy at certain times of year makes the rebel in me rise up. Turkey for thanksgiving, pumpkin in September, ham for Easter.

So as we near the new year I bring you a pumpkin recipe…for the lonely can of leftover pumpkin purée lingering from your traditions, or simply as an excuse to buy some before it becomes scarce in the stores.

This bread is amazing, lightly spiced, tender, moist and perfect with your morning cup of coffee.

After weeks and weeks of bombardment with cookies, cakes and pie these muffins are a sure way to help you ring in the new year deliciously.

About The Adventure Bite

Hi! I’m Dani and my husband is Kevin and we blog at www.TheAdventureBite.com!

We currently live about an hour outside of Atlanta, Georgia….which is right around 3000 miles away from both our families in Oregon. We rent a 1950′s house on close to an acre which we are slowly renovating and turning into an urban homestead.

After converting me from my picky eating habits when we were dating in 2007 we have spent our years cooking and eating lots of good food together. We are the kind of people who go on trips just to try new foods and spend our date night money on fancy groceries so we can try new things.

We hope you will join us in our adventures!
