Make a batch of Pumpkin Maple Muffins to throw in the freezer and have them on hand for a delicious breakfast or snack for your holiday guests!
Yep, it’s that time of year when I just can’t get enough of all the pumpkin things. Fortunately for me, my kids feel the same way. Although our favorite pumpkin muffins will probably always be these –> Mini Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins, I can never resist trying a new recipe, especially if it has the word ‘maple’ in the title. I saw this recipe on Lindsay’s IG last fall and made them right away. And, I’ve made them numerous times since…
Here’s what I love about them – they’re a dense, hearty muffin that pairs well with a cup of coffee or tea; this recipe makes about 19-20 muffins, which will feed a small crowd; lastly, maple glaze…enough said. I made the glaze on the thicker side, but you could definitely thin it out to your liking. A batch of these muffins is perfect for a play group, afternoon snack time or Thanksgiving morning breakfast. Make these ahead, freeze them unglazed and be one step ahead on breakfast for your overnight holiday guests 😉
