Pumpkin Pancake Muffins Topped with Cashew Pumpkin Caramel Butter

Pumpkin season has officially arrived! These muffins are a great on-the-go breakfast option as they contain pancake mix, but who are we kidding, they are perfect any time of the day! One can of pumpkin puree will cover the entire recipe (you will use some for the muffins and some for the pumpkin caramel butter) and you’ll have a little left over. These muffins are gluten free and can easily be modified to be vegan by substituting with flax eggs.
