Optional tasty additions

Your whole house will smell amazing when these will be baking and I guarantee you won't be able to wait for them to cool completely before grabbing one. The flavor is intense, aromatic and sweet. We love eating them warm alongside a hot cup of tea or coffee, so good. If you want to upgrade this recipe, you can always add chocolate chips or dried fruits. Here are some of our suggestions:

Chocolate - Add chocolate chips to the batter, stir to combine, then bake. You will get the most delicious chocolate chip pumpkin muffins. We suggest using dark chocolate chips.

Fruit - Add raisins or dried cranberries to the batter, stir to combine, then bake. The pumpkin muffins will be fruitier and a tiny bit sweeter.

Yogurt - Yogurt topping would work great. Use this recipe to make it.

How long do pumpkin muffins keep? Can I freeze them?

Store pumpkin muffins in a bag or airtight container. Keep them at room temperature for up to 3 days. You can transfer them to freezer bags and freeze for up to 2 months as well. Defrost the muffins by placing them at room temperature for about 30 - 60 minutes, or until soft and delicious again.
