Pumpkin kefir muffins

…and you made Autumn lunch! Use another baked Hokkaido pumpkin half to make this kefirolicious bite. Pumpkin muffins with spices are tasty delight that makes your home smell like autumn and approaching holidays.

Muffins are made with kefir, of course, but I would like to point out that (like most things on my blog) they are not sweet (and I mean “sugary sweet”). In these muffins spices are predominant flavour.

Instead of adding additional sugar into muffins, I like to top them with honey, melted dark chocolate, homemade jam or nut spread. The choice is yours and why choose just one option!

Ingredients and preparation steps
