These pumpkin spice superfood muffins are loaded with raisins, pecans, unsweetened coconut, bananas and honey. I like to make a double batch of these and freeze them for the kids to grab and go for breakfasts and snacks. 
This recipe features Young Living Cinnamon Bark Vitality Essential Oil. You can substitute a teaspoon of cinnamon if you don’t have any available.

The mashed banana provides moisture and acts as a sweetener in these muffins­­ if you do not wish to taste the banana­­ puree it in with the pumpkin puree using a personal blender before mixing it with the other wet ingredients.
