Pumpkin Spice Muffins (Paleo, SCD, GAPS, Keto)

Hi everyone!
I must apologize that it's been so long since my last post.  I admit I'm spending more time on Instagram and less on my blog.  IG is so quick and easy to share ideas and recipes. If you are on Instagram, come find me at @anaussiewithcrohns :)

I've had a wonderful week away at Port Douglas during the school holidays.  I loved the beautiful blue skies, sunshine and gorgeous beaches.  Snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef and exploring the Daintree Rainforest were highlights.

Now I'm home, I'm loving making these muffins.  They are a variation on my Hot Cross Buns, without the crosses and with added pumpkin.  I don't add any sweetener, because the pumpkin is sweet enough, but if you'd like it sweeter, just add a tablespoon or two of honey.  I store these in the freezer and microwave for 30 seconds to reheat.  Delicious! :)

    I added 6 dates chopped up and about a teaspoon of honey, I didn't want it too sweet but just a taste. Fantastic recipe, easy, fast, just how I like them.
