Simple Pumpkin Muffins

To be completely honest, I’m not a fan of Pumpkin-Spice-Everything Season.  In fact, I’ll be the first to say that I hate pumpkin pie, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin beer, pumpkin vodka, pumpkin butter, pumpkin candy, pumpkin scented candles, pumpkin scented soap.  However, I love pumpkin risotto, pumpkin bread, pumpkin scones, and pumpkin muffins.

Regardless of my dislike of pumpkin everything, my kids love it, especially pumpkin rolls, so every so often, I make them one to have as breakfast, and undoubtedly, I always have over half a can of pureed pumpkin left.  Last night was no different.  I made my 14 year old his pumpkin roll, and instead of freezing the pumpkin for risotto, I decided to whip up a quick batch of pumpkin muffins.

The result, the quickest, easiest, fluffiest, tastiest pumpkin muffins I’ve ever made.
