Good Morning Paleo Pumpkin Muffins

I haven’t made muffins in a really long time.  Confession…I’m not good with the portion control aspect and always want to eat, like 5 of them.  When I woke up this morning, I wanted to make something special for the BOY’s birthday.  He isn’t a huge breakfast person, but I know that he loves pumpkin.

I threw out the idea of pumpkin muffins and the BOY was on board.

And then I remembered that I had fun Birthday muffin liners.

This recipe for Paleo Pumpkin Muffins comes from The Frisky Lemon.

I whipped up a half batch of muffins for the BOY’s birthday breakfast.

Before they were even ready, our house smelled incredible!

I knew these muffins would be a huge success!

And the BOY agreed!  We dug right into these warm muffins before they even had a chance to cool.

These tasty muffins were the perfect way to ease into our Sunday!  They were super filling, and I was able to eat just 2.

Once we finally get moving out the door, we have big plans for a trip to Kohl’s and lunch, and then maybe a nap before heading out for another birthday dinner.
