I love this time of year. In our neck of the woods, the leaves have all turned their fiery colors, there’s a nip in the air each morning, the smell of wood burning is ever present at night. As if this isn’t enough, you also have a solid excuse for baking as many pumpkin-flavored goodies as you want to!
With this in mind, I was recently asked to do a Product Review for Coffee-mate Creamers. I was going to pass on the opportunity because I don’t use them in my coffee, but then I saw that they wanted me to bake with their creamers, and thought it would be fun to try.
One of the creamers that I tested was their Pumpkin Spice flavor. It happens to be my husband’s favorite and he couldn’t get enough of it – he drank my entire sample bottle before I could even use it in my muffins!
I must say that I really enjoyed adding the Pumpkin Spice Coffee-mate Creamer into my Pumpkin Muffin recipe. It added lots of moisture to these muffins and my kids gobbled them right up. They actually ate an entire batch of the muffins before I could take my pictures, so I had to bake another batch!
