These delicious Pumpkin Cream Cheese Swirl Muffins are perfect on a crisp Fall morning! If you love everything pumpkin, then these muffins are a must try for you. I am one of those people who as soon as Fall comes I am ready for anything with pumpkin in it. It is my favorite!
I came across this recipe on Facebook as my friends had posted that they made them. So of course I had to get the recipe and make them this past week. My husband and I were in heaven eating them. The recipe makes 18 muffins, but you can put them in an airtight container and place in the fridge for a week. I had one straight from the oven, but the ones from the fridge during the week for breakfast before work were even better!
My hubby and I were so excited to have them for breakfast for the week that I am going to make another batch this coming up weekend. I did have all the ingredients on hand to make them and it only took about ten minutes to prep them and then 20 minutes in the oven. Beware that your kitchen will smell amazing!
