Pumpkin Goat Cheese Muffins

Pumpkin Goat Cheese Muffins_700x366

This particular recipe was inspired by Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin, after exploring the ingredients, of course…

With over 47 grams of sugar, soybean oil, gluten flours, gums, carrageenan , and other potentially damaging ingredients I decided to create similar experience, with health promoting ingredients.

Here is what I came up with! A gluten-free, honey-sweetened, and unhealthy vegetable oil free muffin during the perfect time of the year.

I used the same spices Starbucks uses.
