Y’all…I feel like we haven’t talked in weeks.
That’s because we haven’t.
I’ve been busy with this adult life stuff.
I’m not liking it.
I’m also not loving that it is almost the end of September and it’s a sauna down here in Texas.
I’m seeing pumpkins and fall decor but seriously…nothing.
Not one bit of cold, crisp, fresh air, not one day that I can go without washing my hair after a 3 mile run because…ya know, I didn’t even sweat.
Anyways, I’m going to have to start creating my own fall experiences around here.
I’m always extra excited to post for Secret Recipe Club in the fall because I can be assured that the food blogger that I get will have at least a few fall recipes.
I hit the jack pot with Sarah, the lovely fellow peanut butter lover and the writer behind The Pajama Chef.
I just knew Sarah and I would be instant friends with our genuine love for peanut butter and running.
We know we want something pumpkin.
These Pumpkin Spice Mini Muffins are it.
Plus, plus, they are super cute size for easy accessibility to your mouth.
Plus, mini=less calories, but if you eat the whole batch like me…then you don’t win in that department.
Buuuuuuut, you do win in the flavor department.
These babies are perfectly fluffy with all of the flavors of fall.
Oh, and I made them paleo.
