Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Muffins

Posted on

I feel like my window of time to use pumpkin recipes is coming to an end with Thanksgiving being tomorrow. Does anyone else feel this way? I really hope so, or at least tell me it is socially acceptable to make pumpkin recipes all year-long so I can end my panic and baking frenzy! I ran across this delicious little treat over on Health Bent. The recipe does call for regular sugar, which I have to admit caused a little panic in me. I read an article that was linked to the recipe regarding sugar and GI, blah, blah, blah. It made me think. I mean how many times have I justified a treat because “Hey, its Paleo”, but in reality, sugar is sugar and that is how your body perceives it. I would love to hear your thoughts on this (please don’t make me regret saying that! :P)

Note: I did substitute the white sugar for coconut sugar in the muffins. I used regular sugar on the top because I was afraid the coconut sugar wouldn’t result in the same crunchiness.
