Honey & Pumpkin Mini Muffins

‘Tis the season for everything pumpkin! Pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger are all perfectly complemented by Organic Wilelaiki honey for a comforting fall treat. This recipe from the National Honey Board makes great mini-muffins which are a fun treat with coffee, with lunch, or as part of a holiday brunch spread (but you can also use the batter to make full-size muffins.)
