These soft, sweet muffins pair great with a cup of milk, coffee or a cup of tea. I make this recipe every year, it has become a tradition, I guess. Pumpkin dessert is my favorite flavor this time of year. Other than these muffins I also always make the Pumpkin Cake Roll with Ricotta Cream and sip on this Dairy- free pumpkin pie smoothie.

My apologize if you make a really good pumpkin muffin as well, but these the best muffins for me and I would love to share some goodness with you. No one can resist.
