I recently got a request for my PUMPKIN MUFFIN recipe… so here it is. Delicious and healthy muffins that your family will love. Made of 100% whole grain without any oil they are moist and flavorful. I added vegan chocolate chips but you could add nuts and/or raisins if you like.
Preheat oven to 350 (makes approximately one dozen)
Line muffin tins with non-stick liners (parchment works best)
1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/4 tsp turmeric
pinch of salt
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon flax meal
3 tablespoons water
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 tsp vanilla
In a large mixing bowl whisk dry ingredients and set aside. Make a flax egg (mix flax with water and let sit for 5 minutes to get gel like) and then mix flax egg with wet ingredients to combine. Mix wet into dry just until incorporated… don’t beat or over mix. At this time you can add vegan chocolate chips, nuts, or raisins if you wish.
Fill muffin tins 3/4 full and bake at 350 degrees for 22 to 25 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool on wire rack before eating.
