I've been promising these for a while. And I also promised a food-heavy week on the blog this week. I keep my promises. I'm sorry the muffins took a while, but I also promise they're worth the wait. (You'll see that I kept that promise as soon as you make these treats.) With fall comes the return of Starbucks' pumpkin treats. Pumpkin loaf, pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin cream cheese muffins...yum, yum, yum. But yuck, in a way, because of a) the price and b) the way I feel after consuming any of these. Lethargic, heavy and with a sugar rush - no fun!
