Aunt Mikie's Pumpkin Muffins

Today we have another great recipe from my SIL Amy!  She's always making the best stuff, so I hope you'll enjoy her fun guest post on these award-winning pumpkin muffins!
Aunt Mikie’s AWARD WINNING Pumpkin Muffins
I’m sure you have a good recipe already….forget it!  These will melt in your mouth with unbelievable texture and flavor!  You will thank me when YOU are famous for these!

Yes, I know…….your grandma makes the best pumpkin muffins/bread….EVER!  Well, you haven’t tried Aunt Mikie’s pumpkin muffins!  Seriously.  I have tried everyone’s “famous” pumpkin….stuff.  Most pumpkin muffins, bread, bars . . . whatever…. taste about the same.  Maybe the spices vary somewhat, but let’s be honest, really it’s all about the same delicious….but still the same.  UNTIL NOW

I first heard about these muffins almost 10 years ago when Aunt Michaeleen moved to town.  Her kids raved about her incredible pumpkin muffins.  I thought, “That’s nice.”  I mean, really, how good can a mini muffin be, right?

Then I had one.  No…. I had six.  The first time she made them for us, I was in love.  Pumpkin love.  We dumped all other pumpkin recipes and make ONLY these!  A total family favorite.  We have to ration these out as children have been known to steal away a couple dozen and stash them in undisclosed locations.  These are ridiculously fabulous!  Make them….you will devour them!  Serious pumpkin paradise!  Enjoy!

Let’s get started:

Team players….

Mix wet ingredients together until smooth.

Mix dry ingredients together.

Stir wet and dry ingredients together until combined.  Don’t over-mix.

Scoop into greased mini muffin pans….Or use cute little mini muffin papers…I don’t have any.  I’m sure they were all glue-gunned together to create an amazing princess dress for one of the 100 dolls we have kicking around our house…. 

Bake.  Cool and DEVOUR!  DELISH!
