Pumpkin Spice Muffins
Fall is in the air and so is the warm, cozy scent of this Pumpkin Spice Muffin! This muffin is great as a quick, light breakfast (don't forget the almond butter) or an on-the-go snack. Vegan (all of my recipes are), naturally gluten-free (make sure your oat bran hasn't been cross contaminated), soy free, oil free, very low fat, and free of refined sugars. But don't worry, it's BIG on flavor...and fiber!
