|Ok, so you know when you are making a recipe that you make all of the time and you think one thing and do another...well, I did that. It all started with a trip to the mall that turned into the illustrator and I running home to make these happy accidents! We were walking through Williams Sonoma when we came across the most heavenly scented lotion. We are not much for smelly lotions, but this one threw us straight into the fall season (along with the weather), so how could we resist??? I only had a few minutes before I had to go and get the kids from school, so I was looking around at different recipes online before I left (back to the addiction). I knew that I was going to make my usual recipe, because why mess with a good thing? I guess with all of the recipes flying through my head and all the frenzy from Friday after school (and my agonizing pain to get these muffins in my belly), I read one thing and did another. I am happy to say that these were perfection with my hot cup of tea while sitting on the patio with my partner in crime! These come together easily (all in one bowl), so depending on how big you make the muffins these could be on your plate (if you get that far) in 30 minutes or less!
Fat Free Pumpkin Muffins
1 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup turbinado sugar (sugar in the raw)
1 cup pumpkin
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce (or pumpkin)
1/4 cup of milk of choice (I used light Silk Soy)
1/4 cup egg substitute
1/2 TBSP turbinado sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray or line muffin pan.
Combine the dry ingredients and mix well. Then just add the wet ingredients. I just poured it all in, so I had less dishes! Mix well and then scoop into prepared muffin pan. Sprinkle with remaining sugar. I made 7, but I filled the cups pretty high! These would be great in a jumbo pan!
Bake 18-25 minutes depending on the size of your muffins!
***Oh the accident was that there was no baking powder in the original recipe. I also used all natural sugar and no fat!
