I am finally getting around to baking more pumpkin goodies.  I still had pumpkin puree left in the fridge from the Pumpkin Raisin Bread and I knew I needed to bake with it soon.  But I came down with a cold or sinus junk and didn’t feel like baking or spreading my germs.  But I’m finally starting to feel better and ready for some more fall goodies!

To be honest, I don’t drink pumpkin spice lattes ever.  I had one a long time ago but there isn’t a coffee shop in the town I live in, let alone a Starbucks.  So I drink all my coffee at home and am quite content with that.  But I see people talking about them all the time, especially on Twitter and I think man do they sound good!!

So if a pumpkin spice latte sounds good, then pumpkin spice latte muffins must be really, really good!  Or at least that was the thought that kept running through my head.  I love muffins, so the combo would be fantastic, right?  So I decided to try it out!  I used Kerry’s Versatile Muffin recipe as my base and added in my pumpkin and some of my favorite fall spices.

The coffee flavor in these is pretty mild, so if you are a big coffee fan you may want to add a little more.  I was sharing with the kiddos so didn’t mind the mild flavor.  These were a huge hit around our house.  My 2 year old, Jet, was constantly sneaking into the kitchen to steal more muffins off the cooling rack.  Apparently his arms are much longer than I realize, since I had to push the muffins farther back several times.
