These little chocolaty pumpkin mini-muffin morsels are the perfect treat to feast on during the Fall season.

They are healthy little bites, rolled in a thin blanket of sugar and cinnamon. If you’d like to make them less sweet and more breakfast-like, you can surely eat them without the butter/sugar topping…

But, I believe in balance, and a little sweet topping won’t kill ya. Unless you eat the whole batch, which is possible once you get a taste :).

Peach cobbler baked into a muffin, that’s what these muffins are like. Super tasty, moist in the center with slightly crispy topping, these muffins are the way to go.

Cranberry Eggnog Muffins

by Chrissy

While I am not the biggest eggnog fan out there, I certainly do love it in place of creamer for my coffee. And apparently, I now love it baked in muffins. I can only imagine what eggnog would taste like in pancakes…

Props to those of you who can chug a whole glass of eggnog…maybe I’ll be able to in another life. For now, I’ll stick to incorporating this holiday flavor into tasty treats.

Date-Nut Bran Muffins

by Chrissy

Naturally sweetened, these muffins are as healthy as they come. If you don’t believe me, just skip to the bottom to see the ingredients. I think I cut every corner possible. Although I didn’t make the applesauce, I did juice the apples in the trusty juicer.

Let me tell you, growing up on Tree Top apple juice has skewed my taste buds. Real, fresh apple juice is on a whole other level. It tastes like you are biting into a … Read more...
