Pumpkin Latte Muffins

Pumpkin latte lovers, now you can enjoy your favorite beverage in muffin form! You could even double-down on your pumpkin latte love and pair these muffins with your spiced coffee beverage of choice.

Alone, these muffins are refined-sugar-free, sweetened by maple syrup and vanilla, and naturally-sweet pumpkin. You can choose to add the coffee glaze on top or not, but it does help to drive home the coffee flavor and add just a little extra sweetness.

Now you don’t have to drive to the coffee shop to enjoy a seasonal treat. Enjoy a Pumpkin Latte Muffin with your morning beverage on Halloween morning, or as a pick-me-up later in the day to keep up with excited trick-or-treaters!

I don't normally comment on recipes but this has got to be the best thing I've ever made. It came together pretty easy and made five meals - perfect for meal prep for the week. I already can't wait to make it again.
