I decided to go with muffins for my final pumpkin recipe this week.

OK,they are more like cupcakes. Calling them muffins makes me feel like they are healthier. 😉 Of course, smearing them with frosting kinda kicked that idea out the door,so, what can you do?

These muffins are very similar to my Two Ingredient Muffins back in January. I just switched out the yogurt with pumpkin and added a little cinnamon. They turned out great!

So moist and not too sweet.

Adding the frosting gives you a little added bonus, without making them crazy and overly-sugary-sweet. These are also great just by themselves..the frosting is totally optional.
