Notice the little hand trying to steal one from the plate!!!
The boys enjoyed these as “breakfast dessert” after they ate their cereal!
I found this pumpkin muffin pan tucked away in a cupboard and thought it would be fun to use with these muffins. Aren’t they cute? (I can’t find an exact match for this pan but found another pumpkin muffin pan that would be perfect here !)
Can you have dessert after breakfast?!?
