These easy pumpkin muffins are the delicious fall treats you’ve been craving all year long. With the perfect amount of warming spices and creamy pumpkin, you’ll get all of the irresistible flavors of pumpkin pie in a light, moist, and fluffy muffin. We snuck some whole-wheat flour into this easy pumpkin muffin recipe, so they’re pleasing to both parents and kids. Not to mention, baking a batch in the oven will make the whole house smell like the holidays. Eat these pumpkin muffins while they’re warm with a pat of melty butter, or freeze them and enjoy weeks later after 20 seconds in the microwave.
