Obviously, I have a surplus of pumpkin, so it's on to finding my new favorite pumpkin recipes!
Muffins are the easiest of all things to make, I've decided. One, maybe two bowls, a spatula, and you're set!
Not terribly rich, these muffins are a perfect breakfast or snack! I topped them with just a bit of pumpkin-apple butter. Loves..!!
1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup sweetener (I used part maple syrup, raw agave, and evaporated cane juice)
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
3/4 tsp salt
2 tablespoons flax(optional)
1 tablespoon oat bran(optional)
1 cup pureed pumpkin
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
3 tsp vanilla
Mix all dry ingredients in one bowl and all wet in another. Fold together the wet and dry until combined, taking caution to not over mix. Fill greased or lined muffin tins 2/3rds full. Bake on 350 for 20 minutes or until the center comes out clean.
