I just adore the cozy feeling of the fall. There’s just something about the crisp cool air that really invigorates me. I also love the fall because it’s the time of the year when all things pumpkin make their annual return.

My favorite snack during the fall? Pumpkin muffins. This recipe for pumpkin muffins is my go-to. It’s incredibly soft and full of all of the flavors of fall you know and love.

I love how easy muffins are to make. No need to break out the stand mixer and they’re quick and easy to whip up in a pinch.

After cooling, you can store the muffins in a storage bag or air tight container in the freezer for 3 months.

If you don’t want to freeze them, just keep them in the storage bag or air tight container up to a week.
