Pumpkin Muffin Tops

These Pumpkin Muffin Tops are OIL-FREE, the perfect sweetness and quite addicting! www.LipstickandBerries.com (Desserts)

This recipe was a happy accident.  I was drinking a delicious hot cup of Pumpkin Brûlée tea, and started day dreaming of pumpkin.  After drinking my whole pot of tea, I had a little pep in my step and jumped up to experiment with a pumpkin cookie recipe I had just created in my mind!  When they came out of the oven, they were not as cookie-like as I had intended, and after a taste I decided they were more like muffins! Ah-ha, muffin tops were born! These are crazy addictive!   Lucky for me, and you, these Pumpkin Muffin Tops won’t give you a muffin top!  These gluten-free goodies are mildly sweet with the perfect amount of pumpkin flavor.

When I named these “Muffin Tops”  I was suddenly reminded of a fantastic Seinfeld episode.  Have you seen the Muffin Top Episode?  This short clip is hilarious!

Try these muffin tops with a hot cup of tea or coffee; relax and have a little you time…

  3. Hi! This looks like a super yummy recipe and I was just wondering what the nutrition info was for these guys?

    • Hi Danielle! Thank You! Yes, these are super delicious. I do not have the calorie info, but I would recommend using My Fitness Pal. You can create a recipe and add all the ingredients and then select how many servings. It will give you a nutritional and calorie breakdown.

      Peace, Love, and Berries
