Pumpkin Muffins

I know it isn’t fall or “pumpkin” season right now, but I can eat anything pumpkin all year round.

Pumpkin is an excellent source of vitamin A, fiber, and naturally low in fat. So let’s add pumpkin to our muffins. These muffins are great for a grab and go breakfast with a piece of fruit and it will keep you full all morning.
