It’s fall, supposedly, and while I’m currently sporting a sweat mustache in Dallas where summer just won’t quit, I’ve already had a taste of sweet Autumn back home in Virginia. Once that crisp air hits, friends, you can’t tell me its not fall. And whether you’re on board with pumpkin or not, fall means all things pumpkin in my book.
Pumpkin lattes. Pumpkin candles. Pumpkin colored clothing (also known as “orange” but work with me here…) and while I prefer pumpkin strictly in soup and scone form normally, I couldn’t resist the urge to make a pumpkin muffin the other day and I’m so glad I did!
This recipe is from the Sticky Fingers cookbook and I almost can’t believe I’m about to do this but- I can’t share the recipe. I don’t see their recipes anywhere online and I know they encourage people to buy the cookbook and friends, you will not regret it. Sticky Fingers is a vegan bakery in D.C. that we’ve been fortunate enough to visit and report back that they’re worth every ounce of hype.
Vegan baking can be tricky sometimes- replacing eggs and butter is a delicate balance that sometimes goes straight from the oven to the garbage, but more often than not a recipe is just so perfect you’d never know it was missing anything at all.
I’ve made countless recipes from this cookbook and it has yet to fail me. Cinnamon rolls? Check. Chocolate cake? You bet. My go-to chocolate chip cookie? Yep. Every recipe you ever wished you could find the perfect vegan alternative for is in there. I highly recommend scooping it up right here!
In the meantime, here are a few more vegan pumpkin recipes I plan on testing this Fall. If you beat me to it, please let me know here in the comments so I can decide which to bake first!
The struesel crust on this vegan pumpkin bread is calling my name. This may have to be next on my list!
To be honest, I’m not a huge nut person. When I see a recipe with nuts I immediately think of how I can replace the nuts with chocolate chips (just me?) but from the looks of the photos of these vegan pumpkin scones, I really don’t think I’ll mind the nut factor as long as I can have that glaze. Mmm.
These vegan chocolate chip pumpkin muffins would be the perfect thing to snack on in the car when I don’t need a meal but definitely need some chocolate.
