Thursday Treat: Pumpkin Spice Muffin Bites

Pumpkin Muffin3

Hiya everyone! So I am a very traditional baker. Especially when it comes to anything pumpkin…however, i decided to step out of the box and do something funky for me. Hence… baking something vegan! It was actually a lot more enjoyable than I thought it would and a lot easier. I think the total prep time was less than 20 minutes and the clean up was quick as well.

The trick here is the almond milk- it basically replaces eggs/butter/milk. The pumpkin helps to keep everything moist as well.

A special thanks to Sarah R. for being my taste taster!!!!!

I think that I have totally fallen in love with this recipe. I am pumpkin crazy during the fall and this is just SO good. They are even better second day. Let me know if you make it and how it comes out. I hope you enjoy.

* Be sure it’s pure pumpkin and NOT pumpkin pie in a can.
