There is no better way to celebrate fall than with these Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese Muffins. Deliciously moist, and fluffy muffins that have a cream cheese topping coming together to make a perfect muffin.
As I am sipping my coffee with pumpkin spice creamer this morning, I am wishing for one of these Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese Muffins. They went fast! The combination of the pumpkin and the cream cheese is absolutely amazing. I love everything about fall weather, from the colors of the trees changing to all of the fall-inspired foods. I can pull out my sweaters and hoodies to wear, and fill my house with the scents of pumpkin spices, and cinnamon. It’s a no-brainer that I would bake up a batch of pumpkin spice muffins. My house smelled so good!
The muffins are super easy to mix up, and you do so by hand. No dragging out the stand mixer for this one. I used Barlean’s Butter Flavored Coconut Oil in this recipe because I wanted that hint of butter and coconut. It made the muffins even better, and by how fast they were gobbled up, everyone here agreed. For this recipe, my best tip is to make sure your cream cheese is softened and at room temperature. This will make it easy to blend together without lumps.
