Paleo Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Happy Friday!  Ummm how is September almost over?!

Since yesterday was the perfect Fall day, I went out for a 5 mile run and ended up doing 6 just so I could enjoy the beautiful weather. 

And boy was it a hard run grrrr!  I’m definitely out of shape from traveling and had to stop a bunch of times to catch my breath. :(  But I’ll continue running over the weekend and will get back to where I was before my trip. 

I was also able to kill 2 birds with 1 stone by doing errands on my run.  Bank? Check.  PS pumpkin spice coffee? Check. :D

Fall Recipes

Alright, let’s talk recipes.  I love pumpkin recipes and have been craving them for a couple weeks now.  Unfortunately the people in Germany and Austria don’t feel the same way as I do.  Either they don’t eat delicious pumpkin recipes or I just didn’t see any?  So yesterday I was determined to bake something paleo, pumpkin flavored, and easy.  I bring to you……

Instructions
