I love Fall! Is it the beautiful shadows and light, slight cooling of temperatures (very slight here in Maui thus far), or warm spices associated with this time of year? I think it might be all of these reasons and more. These muffins start with a base of whole wheat pastry flour, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves and end with pumpkin, molasses, and maple syrup for a rich wholesome sweetness. These are excellent with a cup of coffee, tea, or a glass of almond milk.
Substitution: 2 1/2 t. Pumpkin Pie Spice can be used instead of individual spices listed above.
