Pumpkin Sticky Bun Muffins

Pumpkin + cinnamon bun filling + ooey gooey glaze = some serious muffin perfection.

The next few Healthy Food Fridays with American Express are going to be filled with all things pumpkin because Fall is here and pumpkin anything is just wonderful. 


So, let’s kick off our little pumpkin series with these muffins. They are everything you want in a sticky cinnamon roll made simple and with less guilt. 😉
