Pumpkin Cream Cheese Sugar Spice Muffins (Starbucks Inspired)

Updated: Jan 10

These Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins are perfectly spiced, moist, and have a sweet cream cheese filling inside. Topped with DivineKuzine pecan praline topping this easy Starbucks inspired recipe is now one of my favorite muffins. This was a fun recipe to recreate the Starbucks pumpkin muffin I put my own twist on this muffin by using DivineKuizine Complete and Fluffy Pancake and Waffle Mix for the dry ingredients and DivineKuizine Sugar Spice for that warm spice taste. Yummy! They make a great snack or quick breakfast with a big steaming cup of Pumpkin Spice Latte or your favorite Spice Tea.

These fluffy and moist muffins have just the right amount of DivineKuizine sugar spice and are filled with a sweet cream cheese filling that peaks out of the muffin and adds velvety flavor to every bite. DivineKuizine pecan praline on top cannot go wrong with this muffin. You can actually enjoy these warm pumpkin muffins all year long.

I’ve noticed over the years that a lot of muffins are sometimes pretty dense. Not this muffin recipe, these are light and moist and that cream cheese filling just happens to set them over the top! Baking and eating theses Pumpkin cream cheese filled muffins is so comforting, but an added plus of making them in the comfort of your own kitchen Bye Starbucks!
