Pumpkin Walnut Oatmeal Muffins

To me, one the best things about September through November is that it’s generally acceptable both culinarily and socially to live a pumpkin-spiced version of your regular life. Last night, I realized that it was officially December, and I had not posted a single pumpkin-inspired recipe. So to make up for for not representing my most authentic self, I am sharing one of my new favorite recipes for all of you who secretly make pumpkin things year-round but reserve public enthusiasm outside of the designated season.

Chickpea-nut Butter Banana Blondies

Though I will never get tired of a good old fashioned PBJ (classic. respect.), I do have to admit to an undeniable infatuation with its more sophisticated sibling, the PBHB. (For those unfamiliar, this is the peanut butter-honey-banana).  If you’re looking for a remedy to any of life’s ailments much cheaper than therapy or retreats to remote areas of the world, try this: chunky pb topped with sliced banana, a drizzle of honey, and a pinch of cinnamon. If that doesn’t work, then maybe explore other options.
