Easy and Delicious Pumpkin Scones with a Spiced Cream Cheese Frosting – These scones are light and fluffy with a wonderful Fall spice we all know and love. Goes perfectly with a your morning cup of coffee!

Pumpkin season is in full swing guys, whether you like it or not, there is no way around it! I used to HATE pumpkin anything, there wasn’t a single thing I would eat if it had pumpkin in it.

In my opinion they were just to be used on Halloween for carving and throwing away the next day! That all changed when I started to cook for myself and was able to play with the flavors to create a “spice level” that I could tolerate.

Freshly baked with love and humor

Muffins are one of my favorite things to bake – they are easy, forgiving and can be adapted to any taste! Take for example our Double Chocolate Cherry Muffins, or Coconut Carrot Muffins.

I fell in love with making muffins after watching the Seinfeld episode where Elaine partners with a bakery selling just muffin tops (I know I am not alone on this!). Muffin top lovers unite!

That’s why I love this muffin recipe so dang much – guys LOOK at those tops! They are topped with a mound of peanut butter streusel AND drizzled with a delicious peanut butter/honey combination. Thankfully the rest of the muffin is just as delicious so there is no need to toss the bottoms (or stumps) out. (If you know, you know!).

If you’ve been around for awhile you know that we LOVE a good muffin recipe – especially when we can sneak in vegetables like our super popular Coconut Carrot Muffins.

I can say with absolute certainty that these are the BEST Banana Muffins I have had thanks to the fact that they are packed with a cup of grated fresh carrot on top of the mashed banana and other pantry ingredients. Bonus points for them being a recipe from my Grandmothers recipe box which makes them that much more special.
