My friend just posted this recipe on her Facebook, so I’m putting it up here.  Of course, it has pumpkin. 🙂

This recipe is taken from Weelicious.com.  You can go visit their recipe page, or just find it below.  Enjoy!

Servings: 12 Muffins or 24 Mini Muffins

Ingredients:

1 1/3 Cups All Purpose Flour
2/3 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
2 Tsp Baking Powder
1/2 Tsp Baking Soda
1/2 Tsp Salt
1 Tsp Cinnamon
1 Tsp Pumpkin Spice
3 Tbsp Vegetable or Canola Oil
1/2 Cup Agave OR Honey
1 Egg
1/2 Cup Milk
1/2 Cup Pumpkin Puree
1 Medium Apple, peeled and grated (Gala, Pink Lady, Fuji or Golden Delicious are good choices)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine the first 7 ingredients in a bowl and mix.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk the remaining ingredients together.
  4. Slowly add the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and stir until just combined.
  5. Grease muffin tins or line them with muffin cups and fill each cup 3/4 full with the batter.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  7. Serve.

My Notes:

When I make muffins, I usually mix all the dry ingredients together and in a separate bowl, all the wet ingredients.  Then I pour the wet mixture into the dry mix bowl.  I mix, mix, mix and then let it sit for 3-5 minutes.  Then, I mix, mix, mix it all over again.  It makes the muffins nice and fluffy.
