Pumpkin Muffins, Obviously

Reality check: We're a little too old to trick-or-treat. That means, come sunset on October 31, we'll all be out dodging costumed kids on our way to slightly more adult festivities — or at home, hiding from them, and watching Hocus Pocus. Either way, we have a better idea: Make these muffins.
There's no denying pumpkin is the flavor of the season (seen the line at Starbucks lately?), and as far as we're concerned, this is the best way to put it to use. Pumpkin is a great addition to any baked good because of its magical moist-making properties. A little cinnamon, vanilla, and crumbly oatmeal topping? Yes, please! Forget Halloween — when's breakfast?
