Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Or apple spice muffins, all you need to do is swap out the pumpkin puree for some apple sauce! Or I have noticed at my local grocery store mixed fruit sauces, like blueberry apple, that would also work well in this recipe. These muffins could also be good for a quick bite in the morning if you don't have time for something better, or with a little bit of cream cheese frosting they could make an excellent dessert.

Pumpkin Spice Muffins


1 1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup pumpkin puree (or whatever fruit you are using today)
1/3 cup canola oil
2 eggs
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon each of nutmeg, cinnamon, all spice


Preheat oven to 350 °F and prepare a muffin pan

In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, and all spice, set aide.

In a medium bowl beat the eggs along with the canola oil, brown sugar and pumpkin puree till it is pretty smooth.

Add puree mixture to the flour mixture and combine with a wooden spoon.

Spoon batter into prepare muffin cups and bake for about 25-30 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean. I suggest checking between 15-20 minutes though because some ovens run hot.
