I might love every season, but it’s not until summer officially ends that I can truly get into all things fall. Which also means pumpkin EVERYTHING! Although, I had to draw the line at pumpkin flavored pasta sauce the other day when my daughter gave me the ‘not pumpkin again’ look because she’s been kind of getting over the ‘pumpkin everything’ phase I’ve been going through. I’ll get it next week though.

Last week I made pumpkin scones (recipe coming), so this week I made pumpkin donut muffins. Because what could be better than a donut and a muffin in one delicious pumpkin treat?

Serve these with pumpkin-flavored coffee. Because one can never have enough pumpkin!

To add pumpkin to your regular coffee, simply place 1 tablespoon of pumpkin puree, a dash of cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice in a cup and fill with coffee. Top with Dunkin’ Donuts® Extra Extra Creamer, and then stir to combine. So simple.
