Healthy Pumpkin Spice Muffins
It’s been at least 80 degrees in sunny SoCal since Fall began but that doesn’t stop me from celebrating everything this season has to offer! Call me a basic witch but but my house is covered in autumn decorations and I cannot get enough of everything Pumpkin Spice.
Here is one of my absolute favorite healthy Pumpkin Spice Muffin recipes to enjoy during your autumn mornings.
What I love so much about these muffins (other than the fact that they are de-lish) is that they don’t contain all of those artificial ingredients you typically find in store-bought mixes.
They’re grain-free, gluten-free, paleo and packed with nutrients to fuel your body and leave you feeling full. If you’re following the HBMP, this would be a great option for a healthy pre-workout morning snack! Yes it has some sugar, but you’ll burn it right off with the Hot Body Sweat Guide and be ready to take on your perfect fall day!
