Pumpkin Pie Muffins (Toddler approved!)

With fall in full swing, my entire family has been enjoying our fair share of pumpkin everything! I have to say pumpkin pie muffins are kind of awesome. While I love a good, ole delicious and extremely sweet dessert, I certainly don't want to make something loaded with (bad) sugars for my toddler.

Recipes like these easy pumpkin pie muffins definitely give me the satisfaction of knowing that I prepared something delicious, and well, pretty healthy for my son. Plus, let's be real, there aren't many days where I feel like a 'super mom', but these healthy muffins definitely put a smile on my face. Or rather, seeing Mr. Toddler happily devour them, certainly did!
