Sometimes you just want a little something that will satisfy your hunger and your sweet tooth at the same time and with no regrets later.

Topped with pumpkin seeds, the little square pumpkin spice muffins are the ideal choice for breakfast, lunch, and snack time or after dinner dessert. Small in size, but big on flavor, we are a fan!

The months of October, November and Pumpkins go hand-in-hand. The Olive Press presents pumpkin in a new way — pumpkin spice olive oil.  A great addition to fall meals, baked goods and always a great gift idea.
