Pumpkin Cornbread Muffins

THESE. MUFFINS. RIGHT. HERE.

They’re out of this world delicious!

The combination of flour and cornmeal gives them a fluffy, tender crumb while still packing in some serious cornbread flavor.

Since I love a good sweet cornbread, the addition of pumpkin and a generous sprinkling of pumpkin pie spice mix packs these pretties with oodles of flavor.

They’re the ultimate Fall muffin!

Snapping photos of these beauts was almost impossible since I had a teeny tiny little assistant (aka my kiddo) standing over the tray stealing muffins.

I may have been doing the same. They are next to impossible to resist!

I could ramble on about how you need to make them right MEOW but I think if you’ve tried my muffin recipes before you know these are a stop, drop, and run to the kitchen sort of ordeal.

Let’s get our muffin on!

Pumpkin Cornbread Muffins with Honey Butter

Pumpkin Cornbread Muffins

The recipe below yields a dozen fluffy pumpkin cornbread muffins.

For a soft exterior, bake muffins in paper/parchment liners or lightly grease a muffin tin and place on top of a baking sheet in the oven to prevent the bottoms from browning. <– love this nifty little trick!

Feel free to serve muffins with honey, butter, or a combination of both. (SWOON!) They’re also fabulous straight up without a single thing on them.
