Weekends are made for slow mornings and yummy brunches! These vegan pumpkin muffins are full of the pumpkin flavor and fall spices and bakes with full of flavor. It’s naturally sweetened with dates, cinnamon and our Fall Vibes blend. It’s oil-free, using applesauce to keep the muffins perfectly moist and tender and full of the delicious pumpkin flavor!
The cinnamon date topping was pure perfection. No pumpkin muffin is complete without traditional warming spices which is why the Fall Vibes Superfood Blend is PERFECT for these treats that smell & taste just like fall.
