Pumpkin Spice Muffins

If you want to up your pumpkin spice game this season, bake up a batch of these super easy and delicious Pumpkin Spice Muffins. They pair well with pumpkin spice lattes, flannel shirts, leggings, apple picking and hay rides! 


It’s the most wonderful time of the year. When we can stop worrying about bathing suits and shorts and instead it’s socially acceptable to wear the stretchiest, baggiest and most comfortable clothing for the next several months. There is no better time in New England than the fall. I’m pretty sure either Paul Revere or Tom Brady invented Pumpkin Spice. (I don’t know if that’s true, but let’s go with that). All things apple, cider, pumpkin we happily stuff our faces with – like bears preparing for winter hibernation – because we all know snowmaggeddon is coming so we are doing everything we can to enjoy these beautiful fall temperatures and flavors while they last. I even just febreezed the living bejesus out of my house yesterday with a new Pumpkin Spice flavor because why wouldn’t I want every square inch of my house to be drenched with this delicious flavor.

I’ve been crushing Pumpkin Spice iced coffees for the past two weeks so it was only a matter of time before I started baking with pumpkin again. I was actually surprised I hadn’t already done a muffin recipe yet but I’ll take care of that today. There’s so many variations of pumpkin muffins out there, but I settled on this recipe from Baked by Rachel because you can never go wrong with a good streusel topping!
