Maple Pumpkin Muffins with Cinnamon Glaze


Hello Friends!

My Thanksgiving countdown has begun! And these puppies are aahhmaaazzingg

We all need ourselves a scrumptious, warm, fluffy pumpkin muffin every now and then....Can I get a witness? Really. These are one of the best pumpkin muffins/bread I've had!! Perfect for a Thanksgiving breakfast, treat, or just to bake and get into the spirit!

Now, I always try to make small healthy swaps when there's room for it in recipes. For this one, I swapped half of the flour for whole wheat, regular milk with almond milk, and white sugar for maple syrup! Easy peasy. Small changes can help make muffins like these slightly healthier! In my book, "slightly" is better than nothing at all. :)
