Pumpkin Spice Muffins [Vegan]

With crisp 60 degree mornings (i.e. sweater weather in Miami), red Starbucks cups decking the Calder Library tables, and a bling-ed out tree in the lobby of my apartment building, it’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas. I’m all about the holiday season but can we slow down justttt a little? We haven’t even celebrated Thanksgiving yet! That being said, I’ve been making the most of fall baking recently, starting with these Pumpkin Spice Muffins. I first made them along with other flavor combos (more recipes coming soon!) for my classmates and they were a hit! So make them the night before, and you’ll have some strong motivation to get yourself out of bed the next morning. 🙂
