We are finally entering that time of year of all things pumpkin! You might be thinking it’s appropriate to start your morning with a Pumpkin Spice Latte, but how about a gluten-, dairy- and refined sugar-free Pumpkin Muffin instead? Muffins for breakfast (that are also healthy) are a yes from me! Plus, each muffin will have a serving of collagen, which is a great way to begin each morning!

You can meal prep these the night before because they’re super easy and quick to make (spoiler: They take just one bowl to whip up!). Trust us when we say they will have you jumping out of your bed in the morning excited to indulge in a filling breakfast!
