Oh. My. Goodness!
Halloween is this Friday and November is right around the corner. Seriously where has the time gone? I feel like Christmas will be here before we know it! Now, don’t get me wrong I love that time is flying (because I want my wedding to be here) but at the same time I don’t want to just wish time away! I guess I cannot have it both ways can I?
I whipped these Banana Pumpkin Muffins up the other night to get me in the Fall spirit! Hard to remember we are nearing the end of October when we are experiencing abnormally warm weather for Minnesota (60-70 degrees)! Seriously, it is so crazy! Ok, anyways, I these muffins are a spin on classic banana bread (good old comfort food) with a seasonal twist! They are just delicious!
I highly recommend that you make these muffins as soon as possible. Then grab a cup of tea, a cozy blanket and your favorite Halloween movie (Hocus Pocus, anyone?) and enjoy!
