Pumpkin Butterscotch Muffins

** Update for Friday:  Hi, Grocery Cart Challenge visitors!  I’ve got THREE recipes for you this week.  All the rest of you, head over to the grocery cart challenge for homemade maple syrup and other yummy recipes!

Since I seem to be all about recipes this week (have you checked out my pretty pizza braid or my yummy chocolate chip cheesecake?) I thought I’d stick with what’s working, and link up with Life as Mom.  FishMama’s weekly recipe swap is on, and the theme this week is quite seasonally appropriate… all about pumpkins! 

In the interest of time, I’ll share a link to a new pumpkin recipe I discovered on Allrecipes.com when I was cleaning out my fridge and pantry over the summer.  I love the feature where you type in random ingredients and they search for a recipe based on what you have.  Needing to use up 1/2 a can of pumpkin and 1/2 a bag of butterscotch chips in my pantry,  I entered those two items and voila… 

Pumpkin Butterscotch Muffins

I made regular-sized muffins, and substituted some wheat flour for white, but other than that  I stuck to the recipe as written.  The rich pumpkin and butterscotch flavors blend together beautifully.  Try them!

Find a purpose for your pumpkins over at Life as Mom!

  2. I never would have thought of those two flavors melding together! How creative…my kids will love this one!

  3. Great idea! I bet they would be good with chocolate chips, too.

  4. Those sound fantastic! I just baked up a HUGE loaf of pumpkin choc chip bread the other day but, once that’s gone, you better believe these are going on the to-do list! Thanks for sharing!

  5. I have never experimented with pumpkin in my cooking as much as I’d like to. These sound great though. I bet the pumpkin/butterscotch combo is perfect.

  6. These sound really good. Thanks.

  7. That does sound like a great combo. Thanks for sharing it!

  8. Yum Amy! I usually make these with chocolate chips! I’m glad I have some butterscotch chips so I can try these!

  9. I linked here from your guest post on Money Saving Mom. I grew up in a small town, moved to the big city after college, and returned several years ago to raise my family. I know exactly how you feel. But what I REALLY posted to say was DOUBLE YUM. Pumpkin and butterscotch are two of my favorite flavors. I can’t WAIT to try this recipe…do I *have* to share them with my family???

  10. I saw this on here the other day and knew that I HAD to make them. Made them on Tuesday and they are so delicious! Thanks for the heads up!
