I have a very strict ‘no pumpkin’ policy until October 1st rolls around. It seems like every year Starbucks offers their famous drink earlier and earlier and I’m just not having it anymore. Pumpkin signifies that summer is over and I’m unwilling to let it go until October hits. So today I’m celebrating with some tasty Pumpkin Spice Muffins and a little giveaway.

I feel the same way about Christmas celebrations too.  No Christmas-anything until after Thanksgiving. I don’t discriminate here!

I’m teaming up with my friends at Krusteaz today to bring you the easiest Pumpkin Spice Muffin recipe that you’ll ever need and honestly, nobody needs to know that it came from a box. And technically 50% of the muffin will be homemade so you should get credit for that. But if you’re looking for a quick recipe to bring to work or a book club then you can easily impress a crowd by making these muffins.
