Tap…tap…is this thing on? Apologies for the radio silence as of late. Things have been going well with work and between that, gearing up for football season and spending time with my friends and family, I haven’t had as much time to blog lately. But I had to pop in to tell you about some delicious pumpkin spice peanut butter muffins and an AWESOME giveaway.
As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a member of Peanut Butter and Co.’s Yum Squad. And I have to say, they know how to treat their Yum Squad members good. So when this beauty showed up on my doorstep, to say I was excited would be an understatement.
Yes, that is PUMPKIN SPICE PEANUT BUTTER. Peanut Butter and Co. combined two of my favorite things into one incredible jar of deliciousness. I’m also known as a serial coffee mug purchaser (it’s a problem), so getting the adorable #PSiloveyou mug was just icing on the cake.
Instead of just eating the pb straight from the jar (which by the way is totally acceptable in my book), I decided to pretend that it wasn’t 90+ degrees in SoCal and baked pumpkin spice peanut butter muffins with it.
The great thing about the pumpkin spice peanut butter is that it has just a hint of sweetness with a delicious pumpkin flavor. I didn’t end up adding any extra sugar to my muffins because the sweetness was perfect.
These muffins are grain-free, dairy-free, and the perfect fall treat. Now if only the weather would cooperate…
