Pumpkin Cacao Muffins with Cinnamon Whipped Cream

Lisa Eberly

These muffins may or may not change your life. 

My mom always made the bEST pumpkin bread growing up -- seriously, that ish was bananas. 

Not, like, actual bananas, but Gwen Stefani's definition of bananas. 

Anyway. 

I wanted to try to recreate it but healthier and bite sized. 

Enter these muffins! 

These babies are perfect to bring as a dessert to your Thanksgiving dinner!
