Between harvesting our summer crop, planting our fall/winter garden, school starting up, doing family activities, and visiting with family members…I’ve been super busy lately. And not only do I feel like I don’t have enough time to make something sufficient in the mornings, I feel like there’s nothing to make. Well, there’s oatmeal, but no one in my family actually enjoys eating oatmeal.

So I started flipping through my recipe binder and found a recipe for whole wheat pumpkin muffins. Sure enough, I hadn’t made that recipe in over a year, despite how incredibly addictive they are. And when I made them again today, they were just as amazing as I’d remembered. I was really glad I still had a can of organic pumpkin puree.

These pumpkin muffins, slathered with butter and drizzled with a little bit of honey are like a bite of heaven. Pumpkin lovers rejoice! They are super easy to make and can be whipped up in less than 30 minutes. 

When I shared these muffins last year, the pictures were slightly horrendous. No lie. The pictures simply didn’t do these wonderful, tender muffins justice. So here they are, in all their glory.

Yield: 12 muffins
 
Ingredients
  • 1½ cups organic whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup pure organic honey or maple syrup

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a muffin pan with paper or silicone liners and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, spices, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the eggs, honey, and melted butter (or coconut oil). Add to the dry ingredients and mix together until well combined. Fold in the pumpkin puree. Do not overmix.

  1. […] The month of October can be a serious sugar high. Between the return of the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte and the endless Halloween candy, it can be a dangerously slippery slope as we head into the Holiday season. Searching for ways to get my fill of that yummy pumpkin flavor without nearly all of the guilt, I was on the prowl for ways to incorporate pumpkin in a healthy and hearty way. I was thrilled when I found the recipe for Whole Wheat Pumpkin Muffins on the site Natural Chow. […]
