Pumpkin Spice? How Nice!

Our new muffin recipe offers a perfect pairing of pumpkin and honey

October is a popular time for all things pumpkin spice, but who says you can’t enjoy the fall flavor any time of the year? Not us, we love pumpkin spice ALMOST as much as we love honey. Which is why our recipe for Honey Pumpkin Muffins is such a hit with all of our honey lovers!


3/4 cup SUE BEE® honey

1 ½ cups whole wheat flour 

½ teaspoon baking soda

2 eggs

½ teaspoon salt

½ cup packed brown sugar

1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

¾ teaspoon baking powder

¾ cup canned pumpkin puree

½ cup vegetable oil


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Grease a 12-cup muffin pan.

In a large bowl, stir together the whole wheat flour, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Add in eggs, pumpkin, oil and SUE BEE® honey. Mix just until the dry ingredients are absorbed.

Spoon into muffin cups so they are about 2/3 full.

Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven.

Cool in the pan before removing from cups.

Drizzle muffins with icing (recipe below).
