Hazelnut and pumpkin muffins
Fall muffins at their best, pumpkin, hazelnuts... What's not to love? Moist, not too sweet and basically delicious. I used pumpkin but they're delicious with butter squash too.
I am trying to get back into making homemade snacks because I've been really slacking lately. Muffins are easy, way to get back in track, perfect.
