Just last week I started feeling fall in the air. And guess what? I’m loving it! I’ve always been a summer girl, but for some reason this year I couldn’t wait for fall’s sweater weather to start. Maybe it has something to do with my pregnant belly that is basically a portable oven. With my baby coming in a month and a half, quick and easy recipes are on my mind. Insert fall longings into the mental mix, and I created the perfect moist pumpkin muffins recipe!

Fold the mixture from bowl #1 into bowl #2 and mix until flour lumps are gone. I recommend using a rubber spatula so that it’s easy to scrape the sides and bottom of your bowl.

Mix muffin batter for moist pumpkin muffins

Now that your batter is ready, use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to scoop your pumpkin muffin batter into your prepared muffin cups.

Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. (Mine took only 20 minutes.)

Butter Lover?

If you enjoy a smear of butter on your muffins like we do, then you should try Gold ‘n Soft. Its simple ingredients (no cholesterol/hydrogenated oils) and zero trans fats per serving make it a better alternative to butter all while maintaining that great buttery taste. My favorite thing about it, however, is how spreadable it is even straight out of the fridge.

I’m also a fan of the square, compact size. We have a 15oz tub which is great for our small family. (They have a 45oz tub available for larger households.)

I picked up our tub at our local Fred Meyer in the refrigerated section by the butter and eggs. Below is a store locator to find one near you.
