Spiced Pumpkin & Spelt Muffins
Yes, I love fall and I know you all do too. A product of experimenting with some pumpkin and Michael Ruhlman's book, I created these little gems! With pumpkin, coconut sugar, spelt and the most warming of fall spices, these are my current pick me while working 12-hour days. It gets me excited for a little downtime with my afternoon tea or coffee. Easy as always, and instead of binge eating them just keep them in the freezer and pull them out in the morning (they will thaw within an hour or two).
