A quick shout out for the yummiest pumpkin muffins ever! My kids cannot get enough of these easy to make muffins from local author and foodie, Elana’s Pantry. These are slated to be gluten free, but I make them with regular flour and they are delicious! I guess you could say these are super versatile muffins suited for everyone.

For a simple and incredibly delicious pumpkin muffin head to Elana’s Pantry! Enjoy!!!!
