I had about 1 cup of leftover pumpkin puree after using half of it for my dogs that were having tummy issues. I decided to make these Pumpkin Honey Muffins with the leftovers.

Just like most other muffin recipes, this one is pretty straightforward to make. The only thing different about this one compared to my other pumpkin muffin recipes is you get to sprinkle some coarse sugar on top of each muffin before baking them. If you don’t have my coarse sugar you can leave it out.

    I am a great fan of pumpkin. So these muffins were a no brainer to make. I must admit I left the nuts out because my family has allergies, but I must admit I added a handful of raisins. They were delicious and very moist.
