Day 85: Pumpkin Muffins

With leftover pumpkin puree from yesterday's bake (pumpkin chip cookies) I decided to make pumpkin muffins. So easy, and again, a one bowl dish, you will make this all the time!!!

Fill these muffins 3/4 of the way full. This goes for ALL muffins/cupcakes. For best results use a cookie scoop. If you don't have one your next best option is to use 2 spoons.

If you want to frost or glaze these you can. Frostings: Cream Cheese Frosting, vanilla, chocolate, and pumpkin.

If you want to glaze: Vanilla icing or cream cheese. I found that cream cheese and pumpkin go really well together.

These are really similar to my raspberry filled cupcakes. Less sugar, more pumpkin, whole wheat flour!
