Almond Maple Pumpkin Muffins | Recipe from Cooking with Books (

Late last night, we baked these almond maple pumpkin muffins on a whim. Having some leftover pumpkin puree from a previous recipe that needed to be used, as well as a handful of almonds that were laying around in the pantry, created these muffins. Since we’re a family of two, this is a perfect recipe that makes 6 large muffins – perfect for breakfast with your coffee or as an afternoon treat at work.

Almond Maple Pumpkin Muffins are all what fall is about!

Sweet, warm flavors that when combined with the ultimate fall flavor, PUMPKIN, create a muffin that’s  rich in spices. As they baked, the entire house smelled amazing!
