Easy, healthy pumpkin muffins that the whole family will adore. The best way to start a crisp fall morning.
So how about healthy pumpkin muffins for breakfast? Oh, I'm not talking about muffins mearly flavored with pumpkin spice. Oh no! I mean pumpkin muffins filled with pumpkin pie filling. Double the pumpkin is a big yes in my book.
When autumn comes our way, with it comes a pumpkin bonanza. I love pumpkin in its oh-so-many forms. Pumpkin pie muddy buddies, gluten free pumpkin bread, this crazy pumpkin pizza dough recipe, pumpkin bundt cake, pumpkin spice cake, and even pumpkin ice cream!
And of course, you must have the classic pumpkin pie. Pumpkin pie is something I look forward to each year. I love the spiced pumpkin custard filling, a buttery crust, all topped with a dollop of whipped cream.
The best part is that these muffins are healthy too. Whole wheat flour, reduced sugars and oil are helped along their journey towards becoming tender muffins by unsweetened applesauce, which also adds moisture and flavor to these fabulous muffins.
Each bite of these pumpkin pie muffins is moist and lightly spiced. Oh, and that filling - it's the very best part. These healthy pumpkin muffins are a great start to a crisp autumn morning or a great afternoon snack.
