These Pumpkin Spice Latte Muffins give you a kick of that coffee house flavor you love in a fluffy and tender muffin!
When September 1 hits, the jokes and memes start circulating, because as we all know September is #PumpkinSpiceLatteSeason! Whether you get your PSL fix from Starbucks or you make your own at home, if you’re a lover of the infamous drink, you get that fix. But what about when your kid is sick or it’s pouring rain or you really just don’t feel like waiting 20 minutes in the drive-through?
These muffins are the perfect way to get your PSL fix without leaving the house! Just imagine that scent wafting through your house as these babies bake while burning a Pumpkin Spice Latte candle…your life will be complete.
Pumpkin Spice Latte Muffins are a delicious snack or breakfast. They are super easy to make, taking just about 35 minutes from start to finish. It’s a basic muffin recipe, with lots of pumpkin pie spice flavor, plus a few tablespoons of good, strong coffee. The batter is gently mixed together and scooped into muffin cups. You can use liners if you want, but they pop out easily if you just give them a good spray with cooking spray (I use Pam with Flour). They have a good hint of coffee flavor, but it’s not so overpowering that kids wouldn’t be able to eat them…although you might not want to share.
