Cinnamon Cream Cheese Pumpkin Muffins



Fall=pumpkin EVERYTHING! A couple weeks ago, I used this pumpkin bread recipe to make a batch of yummmy of fall flavored bread. To enhance the flavor, I made a cinnamon cream cheese glaze to go on top. It was delicious. I don't have mini loaf pans, so the bread was a bit thick for something so decadent and flavorful. I thought it might be fun to try making them as muffins. So I started playing around. The result? These little cream cheese filled pumpkin muffins. My husband was ALL over them. He absolutely loved them... so I'd say they're a hit. :)

For the original bread recipe click here. Below is my recipe, with the substitutions and additions I made. As I previously stated in my chicken fried quinoa recipe, I do a lot of cooking by taste. So when you see a ** next to something.. just know the amount may need to be more or less depending on how yours tastes. :)

Cinnamon Cream Cheese Pumpkin Muffins

1 15 oz can pumpkin puree
2 tablespoons Coconut Oil
1 cup Sorghum
2-3 tablespoons Agave nectar**
2 eggs
1-1/2 cup and 1 tablespoon of all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 heaping teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 heaping teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 heaping teaspoon group cloves
1/2 heaping teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Cream Cheese Filling

1/4 cup agave nectar **
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
