Fall is one of our favorite seasons, especially because it means a lot more cozy baking and crock pot recipes!

One of my favorite recipes to make with my kids every year are Pumpkin Spice muffins. They’re easy to make and kids can help out. We like to have them for breakfast or snacks.

Pumpkin Spice Muffin Recipe

Starbucks recently announced they’re bringing the Pumpkin Spice Latte back early this year and it got me craving pumpkin spice muffins! While I love Summer, Fall is my favorite season because it means all things pumpkin are back and these pumpkin spice muffins taste just like fall in muffin form.

These muffins are super easy to make and come out perfect every time. My favorite part is the recipe is easy enough that even little chefs can help make them (my toddler’s favorite activity).

These pumpkin spice muffins are so flavorful and moist and will be your new favorite fall recipe!

How to Make Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line a 12 cup muffin tin with parchment cups or spray with nonstick spray.

In a medium bowl, combine the all purpose flour, sugar, coconut palm sugar, baking soda, salt, pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon. Mix until well combined.

In a separate bowl, mix together the eggs, vanilla extract, unsweetened applesauce and pumpkin puree.

Pour the egg mix into the flour mix and mix until combined (do not over mix!).

Once combined, pour the batter evenly into the 12 cups.

Bake for 24-26 minutes or until you can insert a toothpick in the middle of a muffin and it comes out clean

Are these Pumpkin Spice Muffins Vegan?

This recipe can be converted to Vegan by replacing the eggs with an egg replacement. I like to use this one from Bob’s Red Mill.

What is Pumpkin Pie Spice?

Pumpkin pie spice is a blend of nutmeg, cinnamon, ground ginger, cloves and allspice.

If you can’t find any in the store you can easily make your own by mixing together 2 teaspoons cinnamon, 1 teaspoon ginger, 1/2 teaspoon allspice, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg and 1/4 tsp cloves.

How to Store Leftovers

Leftovers should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. They can be eaten cold or warmed up for a few seconds in the microwave!

Can I freeze Muffins?

Yes! These muffins freeze great! I recommend wrapping them individually with saran wrap like this one and then placing in a freezer gallon bag for up to 6 months. To defrost, place in the refrigerator 24 hours before serving.
