My husband’s favorite chewy bar has peanut butter, chocolate chips, and a bunch of other junk. I wanted to convince him to trade in his chewy bars for a more robust snack. Hence, these muffins were born.
The other day at Sunday school, my toddler scarfed down three full-sized pumpkin muffins. With shock, horror, and excitement, I knew exactly what I needed to do next. I needed to make a batch of my own, famous pumpkin muffins to add to her breakfast rotation. The flavor profile of these muffins truly is worthy of the “bomb-dot-com” label. They are unlike any other pumpkin muffin/bread product that I have ever tasted. They have a rich depth provided by maple syrup; a perfectly balanced spice; a beautiful amaretto surprise note; and are great with/without chocolate chips. Guten appetit!
Some of my favorite childhood memories are of going on “lunch dates” with my mom. She would pick me up from kindergarten and together we would enjoy lentil soup, fresh-baked bread, and (if I finished my soup) smoothies.
