Hi Everyone!

I found another great recipe, and tweaked it a bit. It is both healthy and delicious. Try it out! It was easy, and relatively fast to make! I modified the recipe from the one I found on the blog Sunday Baker. She did a pumpkin bread with a more traditional cream cheese filling. I created muffins with a healthy cream cheese frosting.

Step 6: 
Spread the mixture on your muffins. Top with a drizzle of honey if you want to. (There is no honey on the one pictured). Try it out on one muffin to be sure you like it!
Step 7:
Enjoy!
