Pumpkin bites! Nibbles of pumpkin love! Little sweets of morning joy!
I wish I could say I wasn’t this shallow, but the prospect of eating about 50 of these little guys is singlehandedly what got me out of bed this morning. That, and the fact that I would get to tell you about them.
Pumpkin Bites with Maple Glaze. Definition: tiny two-bite nuggets of pumpkin, oats, and maple syrup baked into a cross between a pumpkin cookie (which, for the record, I have never liked, so if you are hesitant – be encouraged) and a pumpkin scone (which, for the record, I LOVE) and a pumpkin muffin (obsessed).
They’re not as flat as pumpkin cookies, and they’re probably a bit more dense than a fluffy muffin. This makes them some kind of magic cookie-scone-muffin mashup that provides a perfect soft-baked dipper for your morning coffee. And then if you would happen to be some kind of weirdo who STILL isn’t convinced, they are drizzled with my all-time favorite maple glaze. So… do I even need to keep talking?
