IMG_8215.PNGOkay everyone, just because Thanksgiving is over doesn’t mean the pumpkin goodness has to stop! These muffins are my absolute favorite to make and are the best sweet treat to whip up for friends and family. The recipe is super easy and includes my favorite ingredient, coconut oil! It makes a great substitution for butter and saves a few calories, right? But who’s counting, I’ve already helped myself to some! Besides, when you’re fitting in workouts 5x per week, you need a chance to treat yoself.

1/2 cup melted coconut oil

1/4 cup almond milk (or milk of choice)
