Pumpkin muffins are definitely one of my favorite things about fall. There’s just something so comforting about a warm, spicy pumpkin muffin.
This is a really old recipe that I’ve made so many times because everyone in my house loves them. The muffins are just so fluffy and the walnuts add the perfect crunch.
I also really love my Pumpkin Banana Muffins, especially when I have a bunch of ripe bananas that need to get used.

Can You Freeze Pumpkin Walnuts Muffins?
Yes, you can freeze these muffins!
Once they are completely cool, put them in a freezer ziploc bag and make sure you squeeze all the air out. They will be fine in the freezer for up to 3 months.
To defrost them, just let them thaw at room temperature overnight. You can warm them in the microwave if you prefer your muffins to be warm.
