If you love pumpkin, then you’ll love these other great recipes:
With school being in session, mornings are crazy busy. Trying to get my three kids out the door, feed the dogs, run errands, complete chores, and more…there doesn’t seem to be a lot of time for breakfast. That is why I love making treats that we can all grab and go, enjoying when most convenient for each person. Plus, these freeze perfectly, so I can make a double batch and freeze some for a later date. I’ve also made little trays up and had my kids bring them to their teachers as a Fall goodie!
These mini muffins are my ultimate favorite because they are bite sized. Easy to grab a few, eat on the run, or enjoy throughout that day quickly! Whether enjoyed warm from the oven, room temperature, or reheated in the microwave…they will be a hit with everyone!
Cinnamon sugar, fluffy bite sized muffins, with a hint of pumpkin; how can you not love that?!?
Paired with a cup of coffee and you have a great start to your day!
Typically on Sundays, my hubby and I make some sort of breakfast. If we plan it right, typically it can carry us into the week as far as leftovers go. Since my hubby had volunteered to make breakfast and my youngest son had woken up early, the two of them set out to work making these. Once the muffins were baked, my son had the task of dipping them in the cinnamon/sugar mixture and he loved that!
It’s always fun getting the kids to help in the kitchen because not only does it teach them skills, but it is a great way to connect as a family, strike up conversations about random things, and just enjoy each others company.
