Pumpkin Spice Latte Muffins

Today is August 27th, which can only mean one thing…it’s PSL release day! So I couldn’t help but make these super light and fluffy muffins in honour of my favourite Fall beverage.

There seems to be a love it or hate it consensus when it comes to the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte. I am definitely in the love it category. As a women living in North America it might be a cliché for me to say that Fall is my favourite season and everything that goes along with it including pumpkin spice lattes, big cozy sweaters paired with knee high boots, and spending most of the season frolicking through pumpkin patches. But I don’t care, I will wear that cliché badge with pride. Let the haters hate! I’ll just be over here, pretending it’s not August, wrapped up in my favourite blanket sippin’ on that sweet pumpkin coffee nectar.
