Healthy Spiced Pumpkin Blender Muffins with Community Coffee

Healthy Spiced Pumpkin Blender Muffins with Community Coffee

This recipe was sponsored by Community Coffee but all opinions are my own and I appreciate your support! 

I get so excited when the time finally comes to enjoy pumpkin coffee again for the season. There’s nothing I like waking up to more than the scent of pumpkin coffee brewing in my kitchen and making breakfast on a Sunday morning! The perfectly spiced and bold spiced pumpkin pecan coffee from Community Coffee is new this year and I’ve been having fun sipping on it and experimenting with in recipes like these healthy spiced pumpkin blender muffins!


What I especially like about it is that is that the coffee on its own is not overly sweet. While I’m an equal opportunity pumpkin lover, I want my pumpkin coffee to have a subtle pumpkin taste that stays true to its real coffee flavor and this one that’s spiced with hints of pecan does just that.

Its full body flavor definitely extends to anything you incorporate it into which is why if you’re a coffee lover, I know you’ll also love these pumpkin muffins! They are only lightly sweetened with maple syrup and made with oat flour. The greek yogurt gives them that extra moist muffin texture, and extra points if you use a pumpkin flavor! I love how light and airy they taste, and were extra delicious with a little almond butter spread on top!

Healthy spiced pumpkin blender muffins are the perfect way to celebrate National Coffee Day tomorrow, while sipping a cup of coffee of course! I know I’ll be making these muffins every fall from now on and in honor of the coffee holiday Community Coffee is offering 30% off online purchases with code “COFFEEDAY2018”. Be sure to get in on the fun and stock up with the flavor of the season!
