Will you just allow me a small rant?  Just before I said that these muffins are sort-of healthy.  I don’t like the word healthy, especially on the internet.  Because really, what is healthy?  Is it keto? Paleo? Vegetarian? Low calorie?  I don’t know.  All I know is that I’m not a paragon of health, so I’m not going to claim that my recipes are super healthy.  Make of them what you will.

But I will claim that they are delicious!  And my beyond-picky child loves them.  Win-win.

These muffins are a riff on my pumpkin spice muffins with cinnamon cream cheese icing, without all the icing.

Hence, healthy? 😉

I also have a lot of other healthy-ish pumpkin recipes you might want to get your hands on, plus a how-to guide on how to make pumpkin puree, for bonus pioneer-woman-awesome-homemaker points.  And if your puree comes from a can?  I’m not judging.  Sometimes mine does too.
