Pumpkin Walnut Muffins


Pumpkin and walnuts go together like peanut butter and jelly!  I start craving my moist Pumpkin Walnut Muffins at the glimpse of those bright orange beauties in the grocery store.  Good news, I start with canned pumpkin puree and a yellow cake mix to make this  one of the easiest recipes you will ever make!

Hope you will give them a try and let me know how your family liked them!

Pumpkin Walnut Muffins

1 boxed yellow cake mix

2 cups of pumpkin puree

¼ cup melted butter

1 egg

1 cup chopped walnuts

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon all spice

1 teaspoon vanilla

Crumble Topping

¼ cup butter softened

¼ cup sugar

¼ cup flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line 18 muffin tins with paper liners.  Mix pumpkin, butter and egg in a bowl, add cake mix, vanilla and spices and stir until smooth.   Add walnuts and mix well, fill muffin tins using a kitchen scoop.  To make topping; mix all ingredients in a small bowl with a fork until crumbly.  Sprinkle topping onto each muffin before baking for 19-22 minutes until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

I am a lifestyle advisor with a passion for connecting families Around the Table for mealtime. We are becoming a society that doesn’t even speak to each other, texting and internet relationships are the norm and it is impacting our culture. I believe the human connection as we know it, is in danger.

My mission is to inspire families, with a no nonsense approach to real food. Gathering Around the Table is key to the foundation of familial relationships. Sitting down to a meal is much more than breaking bread, it is a bonding ritual for families that actually protects our kids from all the dangerous stuff in the world.
