Happy Monday Evening!

I made these Pumpkin Chip Muffins for my family for breakfast this morning… and they were good! They can be gluten-free, but they don’t have to be for those that aren’t really gluten intolerant but choose to be for health reasons. Either way… pumpkin chip goodness!

They are my first recipe using the pumpkin spice chips!

I think they were heavenly! The chips add such a distinct pumpkin flavor! These muffins are like a biscuit, but have a moist center stuffed with pumpkin chips!

What have you made with pumpkin chips??

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

pumpkin season can’t be without these pumpkin chocolate chip muffins. I reduced the sugar added stevia, made them with gluten-free muffin mix and gluten-free bread flour, and added a few more chips to make them extra sweet.

pumpkin muffinsSeptember is almost coming to an end… however we still have the next two months for pumpkin everything. I knew I couldn’t let this season go by without making some pumpkin muffins. I know I have posted a cake mix easy pumpkin muffin mix before but with some health changes I have made in my life… I choose not to eat cake mix anymore. However… I really am in love with pumpkin right now. So… I adapted a recipe and switched out the cake mix for a gluten-free muffin mix and some all-purpose baking flour.

Yup… they turned out really good. I reduced the sugar by a bit and added some stevia in the raw to make it less of refined sugar. I loved them!

Have you made any pumpkin muffins yet this season??

Fluffy Biscuit Muffins

Fluffy Biscuit Muffins

My girls love biscuits and gravy. I mean really love that breakfast choice! I don’t remember having them a whole lot when I was growing up. I think it was just cereal. But for some reason… I make biscuits and gravy all the time. My husband loves it too!

I haven’t been a master at making biscuits from scratch. I usually buy the pre-made biscuits from the store. I throw them on a pan, and make some country gravy.

However… I have been on a baking kick lately and have wanted to try making more from home. This recipe proved to be a great alternative.

Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

peanutbutterbananamuffinsI made the mistake the other day of buying regular plain m&m’s. My husband does not like them. I told him that they weren’t actually for him, but for a bingo game. Well…. he informed that I am only allowed to buy peanut butter m&m’s. Okay I got it.
What are your favorite m&m’s??

I like them all. I think I like the pretzel ones best.

I haven’t made muffins in a long time for Muffin Monday. My daughter Jane, brought home from her school library, a cookbook. She wanted me to make this pizza casserole. I made it for dinner the following Friday for pizza night. She LOVED it. The following Monday her library book was due and she turned in the book… but happily came home and said,”Mom I have another cook book for you!”

The pizza casserole was in that book too… She must have really liked that pizza casserole!!

Anyways… on to the muffins.

I made these one morning for breakfast and the reason I REALLY liked them was that they didn’t require buttermilk. Most muffins require buttermilk to make them a decent muffin. I did however, just share a quick and easy buttermilk substitute that would work if you needed buttermilk.

However… these didn’t and they were really good!
