In this case - pumpkin muffins - the search options were endless. I got "best pumpkin muffins", "spice pumpkin muffins", "healthy pumpkin muffins" and so on.
This recipe is all of the above, so perhaps I should have titled it "Best healthy pumpkin spice muffins"?
I'll let you decide.
You will need:
- 3 1/3 cups flour
- 2 tsp baking soda
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger
- 1 cup oil
- 4 eggs
- 2/3 cup water
- 2 cups pumpkin (I used pumpkin pie filling - if you use pure pumpkin, you may want to add an additional cup of sugar)
Directions:Preheat oven to 350 degrees farenheit.
Mix dry ingredients together.
Add liquid ingredients and mix well.
Use cupcake liners or lightly grease and flour cupcake tin.
- full size muffins 20 - 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean
- mini-muffins for approximately 15 minutes, using the toothpick test as well.
Frost with orange or cream cheese frosting.
These are so moist and delicious that I didn't add the frosting - but I have in the past and it just makes it impossible to stop eating them!
As it is, Hubby finished off about 4 mini muffins within minutes of them coming out of the oven.
More calories headed straight for my rear-end.
Actually, pumpkin has fibre, so quite possibly there will be more than calories heading that way? lol
Have a great one!
