So, I'm going to join every other blogger out there and post a pumpkin recipe.
To be honest, I'm not obsessed with pumpkin like everyone else seems to be. I probably wouldn't have cooked with pumpkin at all this fall except that my friend Justine was visiting from Illinois last weekend and brought this recipe with her. We ran the Color Run, and then we came home and made muffins. Then we ate them. Amen.
They were easy and delicious, and I thought I would share the recipe with you! This recipe got Jordan's stamp of approval, and he doesn't usually like pumpkin flavor, so you know they've got to be good, which they are.
FYI, Justine said you can make a double batch and freeze them! Genius.
