It is officially October, which means pumpkin spice everything time! I understand not everyone is into the abundance of pumpkin spice desserts, beverages and even savoury dishes – but I am all over it! October is probably my favourite month. I LOVE discovering foods with harvest flavours – including pumpkin spice, the leaves start to change colours and it also happens to be my birthday month! This isn’t the only reason I like October so much, but it does play a pretty large role 😉
This post is the official start to my first ever pumpkin week on the blog. In the next week you will being seeing exclusive pumpkin based recipes to help inspire you to joint the pumpkin craze. I’m sure there will be at least one recipe you love! To kick things off we have the perfect fall breakfast. A hearty pumpkin spice muffin with a dreamy cinnamon drizzle. It might feel like dessert but it’s completely valid as breakfast. Warm cinnamon and nutmeg pair perfectly with the punch of fresh ginger and creamy pumpkin puree. The flavours are out of this world!
These muffins are great to nourish you through the morning and any fall activities you might have planned. Or pack them as a mid morning or afternoon snack to keep your energy levels high and blood sugar balanced. With nutrient packed pumpkin, fibre and healthy fats – these muffins are well balanced and nutritious.
