Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Pumpkins are in the store and canned pumpkin is on the shelves and on sale. And of course I had to grab up a few cans of this wonderful tasty, healthy ingredient!

I also grabbed my muffin tins that I used for my Mini Monster Eye Meatballs that I received from Handi Foil! I used the little paper cups that came with the muffin tin and I was able to cook all the muffins at one time.

This muffin is not a super sweet muffin. I wanted something that was warm and pumpkiny, but not with the tons of sugar you get in most muffins. I didn’t even add sugar to the cream cheese! I wanted that tangy contrast with the muffin.

If you would prefer a sweeter treat double the sugar and add sugar to the cream cheese to make it more like a frosting.
