Pumpkin Spice Muffins with Chai Cream Cheese Frosting

Updated: Jul 4, 2022

Fall themed muffins with a little kick of chai

It's Pumpkin Spice season all around, and you know that means Thanksgiving and fall are here or if you're like me it's anytime of year. These Pumpkin Spice Muffins are the perfect way to finish the big meal with family! Pumpkin flavored on the inside and topped with a cream cheese frosting that has hints of chai and sprinkled with a little pumpkin pie spice on top. All of my gluten free foodies know that gluten free dessert at a feast is hard to come by. When you say you've got muffins for it, your jaw will drop and you will eat it up. Now if you want just the muffin and no frosting, just eliminate the frosting and it's still just as good. Happy PSL season everyone!
