Delicious Homemade Pumpkin Muffins

As you might have guessed by now, we are HUGE muffin fans in our home. The kids LOVE freshly made muffins! How can I tell? When I make muffins during the week, I make them at 5:30 in the morning. When the children wake up, I can hear them puttering about upstairs and I can hear them giddy with excitement that they get muffins for breakfast. Even at 7 and 10 years old, they still get excited to pick their own muffins out of the pan!

These pumpkin muffins are fantastic, especially when they are made with freshly pureed pumpkin! I often will take the children to the local market to pick out their own sugar pumpkins (also known as pie pumpkins) that we store outside for decorations purposes until I’m ready to bake with them. Believe it or not, it matters to them which pumpkin I used to make the muffins, it’s almost like it makes them taste different if I used their pumpkin. It is so cute!

    I would love to try these, I think I would go with raisins instead of chocolate chips 🙂 I wonder if I might throw a few chopped walnuts in too?!

    I really like this recipe because it’s simple but has good ingredients. The one thing I would add is walnuts because I like a crunch in muffins.
