Pumpkin Spice Muffins

October 18, 2010

The beginning of the week. Never anything to look forward to right?? Hop on any message board on a Sunday night and you can find plenty of people dreading the coming week. Perhaps it’s a week of shuttling kids to and from school, or soccer and dance lessons. Or perhaps it’s work or school projects that just make the work week seem uninviting.

To me, Mondays are exciting. What have people been making over the weekend? What treats and delicious meals will pop up on some of my favorite blogs? What healthy deals popped up over the weekend? This Monday is going to be different. Enjoy a delicious breakfast to make sure that your week starts out right.

If you claim to be a cinnamon lover like me, see if you can find a better fall cinnamoney muffin than this. There just isn’t anything better than this pumpkin spice muffin. Trust me.


Pumpkin Spice Muffins

1 cup whole wheat white flour 

1/2 cup all purpose  flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon pumpkin-pie spice

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup canned solid-pack pumpkin (from a 15 ounce can)

1/2 cup applesauce

 2 large eggs

1 1/4 cups sugar

Brown Sugar, Cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease muffin cups.

In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients–flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and spices.

In a mixing bowl, mix together the pumpkin, applesauce, eggs, and sugar until smooth. With mixer on low, slowly add in dry ingredients and mix just until fully incorproated.

Fill each muffin cup approximately 2/3 full with batter. Sprinkle a generous pinch of brown sugar and a small little pinch of cinnamon on top of each muffin for added flavor.

Cook at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Muffins are done cooking when they spring back when lightly touched. Remove from oven and allow muffins to cool on cooling rack for several minutes before serving.

Makes 12 muffins.
