Yes I know, pumpkin is everywhere. I am honestly upset at places like Starbucks for ruining such a beautiful ingredient. Pumpkin doesn’t just have to be a fall flavor, it can be a winter, summer, spring, and fall flavor. Also, it can be a breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert flavor. These easy pumpkin muffins are a beautiful grab and go breakfast or accoutrement to any other stupendous flavors you have have created.
So, why my hatred for Starbucks and other coffee shops all over the world? Because they market pumpkin with such a heavy hand, keep it present in our feeds, force market into our bubbles and then serve products that are called “Pumpkin” that DON’T EVEN HAVE PUMPKIN IN THEM! I care because people are getting fed sugar bombs that have no pumpkin and then get upset when pumpkin doesn’t taste like that at home. They are destroying a beautiful thing and abusing an ingredient!
