Yummm, with the holiday season right around the corner, these Pumpkin Muffins are just what the dr ordered :) I admit I have a sweet tooth and that's why I'm always on the look out for healthy recipes to satisfy my cravings. Being on the vegan Kickstart diet really helped me get a perspective on how much sweet stuff or just junk that Americans really eat. Although there are vegan muffin recipes, this recipe isn't vegan but it is a healthier alternative to other holiday pastries.

Gather the little ones (or teens in my case), bake and enjoy! =D
