These look so good! I wish they sold canned pumpkin puree in Australia - it takes so much longer to make it yourself to add to things.

malpaz said... [reply]

those muffin tops are huge! haha pumpkins mean fall and winter squash!!! nom nom!!

eatme_delicious said... [reply]

Yumm I love how giant the muffin tops are! I've tried a recipe for pumpkin millet muffins from the Rebar cookbook but I think I changed too many things in the efforts to make them healthier and they didn't turn out so well. I love the crunch that millet adds!

Lauren @ Health on the Run said... [reply]

I just read through all your muffin posts. This is awesome Kelsey!! All of your recipes look delicious, and I LOVE how huge your muffin tops are!! Thanks for sharing the results of your muffin-genius. One of these days, I will definitely have to try to re-create all of these :)

XOXO-Whit

lequan said... [reply]

Wow Kelsey, your muffins just keep getting better and better! These look scrumptious :-P. Come to think of it, I don't think I've had a pumpkin muffin before.

todayslady said... [reply]

Girl, you have definitely gotten the bakery-looking muffins thing accomplished! These look amazing, as do the ones from the other day!!! Mmmmmm I love a pumpkin muffin!

Hope school's going well! Cant wait to hear more about it :)

Krista said... [reply]

K, so I made the espresso chocolate chip (posting about and linking to tonight) and we just ran out today so this recipe comes at the perfect time! THANKS!

tatiannalives said... [reply]

Yum! My muffins never ever look that professional! If they look as good as they taste, I bet these are amazing! I love the addition of pumpkin seeds on top too :)

<3 Tat

Megan D said... [reply]

Mary @ Bites and Bliss said... [reply]

Lisa (bakebikeblog) said... [reply]

I must stop reading your blog before breakfast! It makes me too hungry :)

Angela (the diet book junkie) said... [reply]

you know my heart so well. keep up the good job, girl! (p.s. hope you're enjoying school :))

Marianne (frenchfriestoflaxseeds) said... [reply]

Someone must own the Rebar cookbook ;) I love your bakery style giant muffins. I think I'm going to have to try making some myself.

Madeline - Greens and Jeans said... [reply]

So when are you going to start a mail order business so I can taste test some of these bad boys?

highonhealthy said... [reply]

No lie - if you opened a bakery I would be a regular customer. How in the world do you get your muffins to look like that?! Mine are so tiny and pathetic. :(

ohonemorething said... [reply]

Just bookmarked this :D This is the recipe I was actually most excited about lol. They all look sooo good though!

XOXO

p.s. I voted for you ;)

Monet said... [reply]

I love pumpkin and ginger...they are such a perfect pair! Your muffins turned out beautifully! I wish you could send me one. And I need to start adding more batter to my muffins tins...yours look so large and lovely!

sophia said... [reply]

The best part is the tops!! Why are people so afraid of muffintops? Hee hee.

Eden said... [reply]

Who eats all these muffins??? do you sell them? give them away?
When are you opening your bakery already!?

Sara @ Nourish and Flourish said... [reply]

Yay! I've been waiting for this recipe!! Do you think a GF baking mix can replace the pastry flour? I've never cooked with millet, but am excited to do so! xoxoxo

the actor's diet said... [reply]

i've never had millet before - i bet i would love it, esp. in pumpkin muffin form

Kayla said... [reply]

I was looking for a pumpkin muffin recipe and I wasn't expecting you to have one! I made these except I didn't use millet or pumpkin seeds (didn't have any!). These are sooo good! The recipe made 24 regular sized muffins and a small loaf of bread! I decided to add dried cranberries to the loaf and I wish I added them to the muffins, too! I glazed the muffins and bread with honey, too! Delicious!

Heidi - Apples Under My Bed said... [reply]

Wow, yum! I just found your blog. These look amazing!! Cannot wait to try them. I agree with the 1st comment that we need canned pumpkin in Australia! I see so many US recipes that use it and lust after them so much.

CaSaundraLeigh said... [reply]

You had me at pumpkin--how good would these go with a spiced pumpkin latte!? Drool!

A CopyCat Cooks said... [reply]

Can't wait to try this recipe. The Market on Millstream occasionally sells the pumpkin millet muffins. since I fell in love many years ago - a bag of millet is in my freezer, that little ancient grain gets thrown into all sorts of my baking!!

michelle said... [reply]

These are on my 'muffin to make' list for sure! Looks like they came straight out of the bakery!
