Pumpkin Spice Muffins are a real treat during the fall months. Try a couple with a spoonful of ghee and enjoy them with a warm cup of coffee and a couple pieces of bacon. That’s a pretty perfect breakfast in my opinion.
This muffin recipe started as a Paleo muffin recipe, but I have also added a low carb/sugar free Keto option. I prefer using Lakanto Golden Sweetener as a replacement for the honey.
