Taste of the Sisterhood – Get your pumpkin on

I don’t know about you, but when’s the temperatures start turning a little cooler, I am all about baking. More often than not, my baking contains some degree of pumpkin-ness.

I looooooove me some pumpkin. Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin Muffins, Pumpkin Bread, Pumpkin Spice Latte… Now I’m drooling.

Pumpkin puree

And do you realize how much of a nutritional power house pumpkin is?

It gets it’s amazing orange color from Beta carotene, it’s loaded with potassium, zinc, vitamin A, vitamin C and FIBER and is very low fat.

Really, you should just bathe in it.

O.K. So bathing in it is really not an option. So I’ll leave you with this recipe instead. These are seriously the best muffins I have ever made. The kids cheered yesterday when they got home from school and found these cooling on the counter.

    I love pumpkin and if I hadn’t just baked two loaves of healthy pumpkin bread yesterday, I would totally be making these today! I bt you could replace the oil with unsweetened applesauce and still retain the flavor- I do that all the time in baking!

    I’m with Lisa! If I hadn’t made pumpkin cornbread yesterday, and pumpkin pancakes for breakfast today, I’d be all over these! But definitely printing it out for future reference!

      Quick question. Has anyone done regular sized muffins out of these? if so can you tell me baking times. I am going to do these tomorrow and don’t own mini muffin tins lol. I can guess the times but I hate to ruin them :)

      • Jeasrose

        I made them in the regular size at 350 for about 13-15 mins or so.

    Okay, I made a double batch and the kids and I had them and they are great. What is a serving?

    i actually thought that pumpkin can be a substitute for oil and eggs in a recipe. so maybe you don’t even need those? hmmm

    Thank you for this recipe! We cut out the water and added in greek yogurt. We also added in mini chocolate chips! Yummo!!

  • Amy

    I made these and I LOVE them so much! I couldn’t believe how moist they were! I know this goes a bit against the whole point, but I will admit I added just a *few* chocolate chips. :)

  • Jessrose

    I made these tonight and they came out delicious! I didn’t have nutmeg or baking powder so I substituted with pumpkin pie spice and a little extra bling soda. I did them in a regal ur pan too! They were great! Thanks for sharing this recipe.
