Hey cool people!
Let me fire up your weekend with the return of Foodie Friday.
And I’ve got something very seasonal and a healthy alternative to some of those more sugary items you might be tempted with as the holidays approach.
Let’s take a look at Healthy Pumpkin Muffins…
Makes: 12 muffins
Prep Time: 5-7 minutes
Cook Time: 18-20 minutes
1 ½ cups Whole Grain Flour
½ tsp Salt
½ cup Sugar
½ cup unsweetened Applesauce
1 tsp Baking Soda
½ tsp Baking Powder
1 cup canned Pumpkin puree
¼ cup 1% Milk
2 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
In a bowl, mix together the milk, eggs, applesauce, pumpkin puree and sugar.
Add whole grain flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and pumpkin pie spice. Don’t over mix.
Fill muffin cups ¼ of the way. Bake at 350-degrees for 18 to 20 minutes (depending on your oven) or until a cake poker comes out clean.

I actually have not tried these yet, but I like pumpkin, I like muffins, and I like how all the ingredients are all natural, so this should be a good match for some yummy eating later on.
Let me know what you think. Have a great weekend!
