hiiiiii! did you miss me this weekend? i’ve made you pumpkin muffins to make up for missing sunday sprinkles.
labor day weekend was really busy! I’ll tell you all about it! in a different post.
but nowwwwwww i’ve made you muffins.
they’re forgiveness muffins. do you feel like i’m bribing you?
side note: i have this copper mixing bowl and i messed it up on the inside because i thinkkk it got washed incorrectly. does anyone know how to fix it?!
i loveeeee the bowl. i really want it to be pretty again.
okay back on track.
have you guys had a pumpkin spice latte yet?
i’ve been drinking pumpkin coffee for two weeks now. because i have serious issues.
i really, really do.
so anyway. when i was getting my pumpkin coffee from dunkin i alsoooo decided to get a pumpkin MUFFIN.
and it was…. nothing short of amazing. and i couldn’t get it out of my mind.
so i decided to make some! but i didn’t want to make my super easy 3 ingredient pumpkin muffins. i wanted to try and recreate the spiciness of the dunkin muffins. with the density of a slice of pumpkin bread from starbucks.
and guess what?!
i didn’t achieve either. HA. but the muffins were really good. and i had people over who lovedddddd them. so i figured i’d share.
they’re spicy and cake-y and wonderful.
if you make them with chocolate chips and butterscotch chips and its a whole other level. and you should definitely eat them warm.
plus. they’re so PRETTY.
especially if you sprinkle a little bit of brown sugar on top!
it’s like the perfect breakfast.
the perfect, warm, muffin full of FALL.
i want to drink a cup of coffee outside on a bench with a cardigan on and leaves falling around me and really amazing muffin to dunk in my coffee. with boots. and scarves. and brown sugar. and like 60 degree weather.
cannnn you tell i’m ready for fall?
here’s my real question for you: are ugg boots still acceptable at 26? they’re SO COMFY. butttttt i need to move on right? what are your thoughts?
can we discuss the thoughts over a muffin? maybe two?
maybe one freshly warm with a slab of maple butter?
you know you want to.
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- ½ cup bread flour
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon ground cloves
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- ½ teaspoon nutmeg
- ⅔ cup sugar
- ⅔ cup light packed brown sugar
- 1 whole egg
- ¼ cup plain greek yogurt
- 1 cup canned pumpkin

- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients (all purpose flour, bread flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, ground cloves, pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, sugar, & brown sugar). Use a whisk or a fork to evenly mix the dry ingredients together.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the egg, yogurt, and pumpkin.
- Slowly combine the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, until a batter forms. If you're using the chocolate and butterscotch chips, add them into the batter.
- Scoop the batter into a muffin tin with cupcake/muffin liners. Fill the liners until they are about ¾ of the way full.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes.
