Pumpkin Spice Mini Muffins are a big hit in our home. Well, they are with at least two of my children. The picky one won’t even try them if I paid her to, kids right?
Out of all three of my children Hailee is the least picky of all. Over the years I have had very few arguments about food with her and she is at the very least willing to try something before saying she doesn’t like it. Bella of course is still young so I don’t really acquire her pickiness to anything more than being a toddler. Abby of course as I have written about before is picky and has been that way since she was about 4 or 5 years old.
Thankfully I know, one day, Abby will start to try new foods and when she eats something she told me was gross or said “I don’t like that” before I could even finish saying what “that” was I will have the last word of “I tried to tell you how good that was when you were … years old”.
This past weekend I was not only extremely busy with work I was also sick. My whole family had been sick the week prior and I thought I was in the clear once they all started getting better. Unfortunately the next day I woke up with the chills, sore throat, and congestion so bad I wanted to rip my face off, thanks family! Hailee however was determined to bug me into an oblivion to make her pumpkin spice muffins. Unfortunately for her the time was just not available so yesterday I decided while she was at school Bella and I would bake a batch and surprise her when she got home.
These pumpkin spice mini muffins take no time at all to whip up and I love that they are bite size.
