pumpkin pie muffins // coconut + brown sugar

Pumpkin Pie Muffins // Brown Sugar + Walnuts
This recipe was originally suppose to be something completely different but I procrastinated and cherry season came and went. But, I am pretty happy I dragged my feet- if I didn't I am not sure these muffins would have ever come to be. 

These muffins in my book are perfect- everything a muffin should be. Sweet, but not overly so, big and fluffy with the perfect muffin top.

Pumpkin Pie Muffins // Brown Sugar + Walnuts
The ingredients are rather simple and thanks to NOW I always have them on hand to whip up a batch. I absolutely adore the combination of pumpkin, coconut and walnut- they are my dream trio in many of my pumpkin desserts.

  1. It's early morning right now, and so I'd make a batch of oatmeal. If only I had them now, I'm hungry! :D

  2. I'd make some pumpkin spice bliss balls for my cycling trip to the Peak District next weekend. Homemade energy treats are so much nicer than gels and energy drinks in my opinion :)

  3. These muffins look so good! I love streusel-y toppings on muffins.

    I'd use the NOW ingredients to make some pumpkin bread with walnuts. Or maybe some coconut date walnut balls.

  4. So glad I've found you guys from NowFoods on Facebook. Would love the chance to try Organic Pure Maple Syrup because everything looks so yummy. Thank you~ :o)

  5. I'd make some Oatmeal Cookies with this!

  8. Pumpkin muffins are my favorite.

  9. I would use these ingredients to make some really delicious overnight oats!

  11. I would eat these muffins year round!!!!
