These taste as close to Costco muffins as I’ve ever eaten. I know some people tire quickly of pumpkin spice everything, but NOT ME!

So if you’ve had enough pumpkin for the season just bear with me.

    These were easy and delicious. I used an ice cream scoop and had about two scoops per muffin cup and made 10 muffins. I topped with a sugar cinnamon mix and baked for about 26 minutes.5 stars

      I would bake them the day before, allow to cool completely and store in an air-tight container. They should stay moist and delicious for a couple of days. Thanks for coming by, Michelle!

    I’m not the best baker. My daughter (who is) scolds me when I put the wet ingredients on top of the dry and just mix it up all together. Even though I’m doing it wrong, this is the most forgiving recipe for muffins you will ever find. They turn out perfect every single time. I make these with Bob’s Red Mill gluten free flour. Serve these to your guests who bug you about being gluten free. Don’t tell them these are gluten free. Watch them ask you for a second muffin. And a third. Then tell them it is a bummer being gluten free when you have to share all your delicious gluten free pumpkin muffins with everybody else!5 stars

      Do it the other way. Put all the wet ingredients in and mix that first. Then add the dry ingredients one at a time mixing between each and ending with the flour. It should work out fine for most muffins doing it this way.. I’m assuming you are trying to save on the extra bowl to wash. πŸ˜‰ I do that too sometimes.

    Has anyone tried with fresh pumpkin?does it come out the same or does it need tweaking a little?i have tons of fresh in the freezer…me and my mother in law always freeze a Lot of pumpkins when they go on sale lol

    Just made these! Delicious! For myself I would reduce the sugar a little. Maybe just add a cup. Of course my kids aren’t complaining and love them! I added cream cheese frosting as well. This recipe will be a staple in our house. Thank you!5 stars

    I have been waiting for fall to make these! I picked up pumpkin today to jumpstart my pumpkin baking season. I will be making these soon.

      Hi, Lindsey! I can’t say if they would be the same, I’ve never tried it with butter.

    These muffins look delicious. I’m making them for breakfast on Christmas morning. Pumpkin is not just for the Fall! Are these made in a regular-size muffin pan or is it a pan for jumbo-sized muffins? Thanks for the great recipe!

      Yeah, these are jumbo size like you would get in a bakery. Let us know how they turned out πŸ™‚ Merry Christmas!

    Hi, I lost my old recipe for pumpkin bread muffins after I was diagnosed with celiac disease and yours is the closest from what I can remember so I’m going to try it with gluten free ingredients and hope for the best! Pray for me. 😭
    I do have a question for you though. I think I only used nutmeg and a little cinnamon in mine to let the pumpkin shine through but I can’t remember how much! What would you do? Is pumpkin pie spice overwhelming? I mean obviously a lot of ppl love it, I just don’t want a strong cinnamon, spice taste.
    Thanks for the recipe!

    1. Reply

      Hi, Stella! Please do let us know how it turns out gluten-free. The pumpkin pie spice might be a little too strong for you if you prefer less cinnamon. Try just adding your own measurements of nutmeg. Or typically pumpkin pie spice is cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, and allspice. You could try adding a 1/4 tsp of each of those spices with ommitting the cinnamon. I hope this helps.

    Just took these out of the oven! So easy to put together. This is my second batch – I had run out of my Pumpkin Pie Spice, so I adapted from my Pumpkin Bread Recipe. Wonderful recipe! Thanks for sharing !! Thinking the next batch I’m going to melt some butter & dip the tops, then dip in Cinnamon Sugar for something different !5 stars

    These muffins are delish and easy to make. I always add golden raisins to the flour mixture before combining with wet ingredients. Today, I added a streusel topping too: 3 T cold butter, 1/2 c sugar, 1/2 c flour. Mis together into crumbs and sprinkle on top of muffins before baking. So yummy!

    Muffins turned out perfectly! I wondered how they would taste with only plain sugar (no brown sugar), but they aren’t missing it at all. They had a nice rise, are moist and tasty. Thank you for a great recipe!5 stars
