Fall. . .Finally {A 31days Post}

IMG_9638

I love everything about fall. The colors, the crispness in the air, the smell, the coziness. All of it. I’m a little behind the times when it comes to pumpkin recipes, but that’s because a week ago it was still 94 degrees. But I’m totally immersed in it now. Pumpkin creamer, pumpkin pancakes and, yesterday and today, pumpkin muffins. The best ones ever.

Please excuse the valentine’s muffin cups. We like to keep things exciting around here.

Fall for our family means settling in. Settling in to our home, our routines, and our family. Friends have mostly gone back to school and the focus comes back to each other. Everything about fall signals us to slow down and breathe deeply.

I don’t know why, but the only fall decor I can fully commit to is pumpkins. I’ve got so many different sizes and styles. Real, fake, glittery, light up, fabric. I won’t turn away a good pumpkin.

Especially in my food. There’s something about the smell of pumpkin and cinnamon baking together. It’s warm and relaxing and perfectly fitting for this season of settling in. I can’t claim this recipe. I found it through Pinterest over at Lovely Little Kitchen. The only thing I did differently was leave out the cloves and nutmeg. Because A) I don’t like cloves and B)we didn’t have any nutmeg. So I added a little extra cinnamon to make up for it.

Like I said, I’ve made these the last two days in a row. My dog was even inspired to scale the kitchen counter to eat the leftovers. (We had words, you can be sure.)

So whip these up with a mug of pumpkin flavored coffee (or chai tea!) and get ready for amazing.

Best Ever Pumpkin Muffins!

-1 3/4 cup flour

-1 cup sugar

-1/2 cup brown sugar

-1 tsp baking soda

-1/2 tsp salt

-2 tsp cinnamon

-1/4 tsp ground cloves

-1/4 tsp nutmeg

-2 eggs

-1 15 oz can pure pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie filling)

-1/2 cup coconut oil (melted)

-1 tsp vanilla extract

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and place 12 paper liners into each well of your muffin pan.
  2. Measure out the flour, sugars, baking soda, salt, and spices in a medium bowl and whisk it all together.
  3. In a bigger bowl, lightly whisk eggs, add remaining ingredients and mix.
  4. Add dry ingredients to the bowl of wet ingredients. Stir until just combined.
  5. Fill muffin cups almost to the top.
  6. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.

ENJOY!
