Crumb Topped Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Posted on

Tell me you are still loving all the great fall recipes out there right now?! I hope so! It’s not over yet folks, so be prepared for a few more fall recipes to come your way.

As far as muffins go, Joe really loves when I make breakfast treats that he can enjoy – in moderation – instead of the typical eggs and yogurt. And so do I! Typically, he will stand in front of the fridge and say, “Hmmm what should I have for breakfast today?” That’s if there are no special breakfast treats hanging around on the counter. If there are any “treats”, he doesn’t have to contemplate for a second. He usually dives into them as soon as he wakes up and walks down the steps.

I did make pumpkin muffins a few weeks ago, but they were not nearly as good as the crumb topped ones I made this morning. These were bangin’!!! I love the crumb topped part of these muffins and would definitely prefer them over a glaze or icing topped muffin any day. The crumbs reminded me of those enormous muffins you get at a local bakery where the muffin is almost the size of your hand and you have a hard time fitting it into your mouth! Well, they weren’t that big…that’s an exaggeration, but they were still just as good!

What’s your favorite muffin?

Do you love the crumb topping on the muffins?

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

Posted on

If you are thinking about making a pumpkin pie this weekend, but don’t have the time or energy, make a pumpkin pie smoothie instead! This smoothie I made for my girlfriend, Maisie, last Wednesday and it was so good, I had to make it again this morning and blog about it immediately! Lucky you, right?

This “recipe” which is nothing more than throwing ingredients in the blender and making a smoothie, tastes just like pumpkin pie! I think it’s the oats that help it to have that crust flavor. Not only does it taste like pie, but the smoothie is very easy to tweak. If you want the smoothie to be creamier add more almond milk, if you want it to be more hearty and thick, add more oats. It’s just that simple…So what’s your favorite recipe this fall? Please share, so I can continue on my spree of making seasonal recipes
