Pumpkin Mini Muffins are soft, flavorful, and carry just the right amount of fall spice. These muffins are perfect for a fall breakfast, brunch, or after school snack.
With school back in session, life just got all kinds of busy. Besides sports practices after school, the kids also need to get their homework and reading done. But the first thing my son does when he gets home from school is ask for a snack. And his favorite thing to drink with his snack is NESTLÉ® NESQUIK® Powder. I decided to make Pumpkin Mini Muffins as a yummy, fall after-school snack. They taste great with Nesquick and my kids love them!
My boys always ask for Nesquick and insist on mixing it up themselves. With 7 essential vitamins and minerals, Nesquick provides nutrition with the chocolatey flavor that my kids love. They get 8g of protein when it’s added to 8oz of milk. Nesquik is the perfect drink to help them fuel back up after a long day.
Pumpkin Mini Muffins are the perfect size and flavor for an after school snack in the fall. My kids absolutely loved them with their Nesquick!

I made these a couple of days ago and they were so good! I did substitute a 1/4 cup of the oil with unsweetened apple sauce and cut back a bit on the white sugar. My boys loved them! I did have enough left over extra batter to make 4 regular sized muffins. I mixed some chocolate chip cookies in. Very tasty! Thanks for a great recipe!
Sonya, thank you so much for your comment! I love those tips about the applesauce and chocolate chips. I need to try that!
