Happy unofficial start to fall, My Cooking Spot readers! This is Megan – The Emotional Baker and I’m back this month with a great muffin to ease you into fall baking.

Although I haven’t started baking with pumpkin this season, I can feel the itch coming on. (I actually made these in May!!)

When I was growing up, there was a bakery in town that made the best pumpkin muffins. They were huge and so moist. Every year, as the leaves start to change and temperatures start to drop, I crave one of those perfectly spiced treats.

These muffins hint at fall instead of scream it. There are no spices and the banana tones down the pumpkin flavor. If you don’t want to jump into fall baking at full force, this is a great option.

Here are some tips while making these:

  • Have all your ingredients, bowls and utensils on the kitchen counter before you get started. This helps with stress free baking.
  • Try other mix-ins. I’m sure these would be delicious with dried fruit.
  • Want a pretty muffin? Be sure to top batter with more mix-ins.
