Pumpkin Brown Sugar Muffins

Pumpkin Brown Sugar Muffins deliciously moist and packed with flavor
'Tis the season and luckily these muffins will fit right in to your life. They are awesome for breakfast on the go or breakfast at home. However, they are so delicious and moist they work perfectly for dessert, your next office potluck, a basket of muffins for a friend or whatever else you can come up with.

I even wrapped them up and put them in my teenager's lunch. He asked for two the next day. There is something about this particular ratio of ingredients that just turns out the best muffins. But don't believe me, try them for yourself.

I've mentioned here how much I love walnuts....right? I feel like they are the perfect balance when it comes to baked goods. They work with sweetness so nicely and I could just go on and on about them.

These bake up nicely in a standard muffin tin, no paper liners are necessary. They make about 18 if you don't eat too much of the batter (caught you) and scoop them in half cup portions.

Pumpkin Brown Sugar Muffins so very yummy
I made these in my new Wolf Countertop Oven, but no fear, your regular oven will also bake them up nicely.
