Three favourite pumpkin muffins: One combines pumpkin and apple, another is a cornbread variation and the third is a pumpkin oatmeal muffin. Choose your favourite.
Fall is definitely the season for pumpkins and what better snack to bake this weekend than pumpkin muffins.
Here are three of our favourite recipes. One combines pumpkin and apple, another is a cornbread variation and the third is a pumpkin oatmeal muffin.
All three recipes are refined sugar-free, sweetened naturally with molasses along with honey or maple syrup. They’re wholesome and flavourful and taste just like fall.
Three Favourite Pumpkin Muffins Recipes
These Pumpkin Oat Molasses Muffins have a surprisingly light texture and they’re nice and moist. I use whole wheat pastry flour, but regular whole wheat flour works fine too.
These are great snack muffins. Hearty and wholesome, they hit the spot. No butter required.
Apple Cider Pumpkin Muffins are refined-sugar-free – sweetened only with molasses and maple syrup.
Pumpkin and apple are a great combination. The flavours both go well with spice and adding diced apples to the batter helps keep the muffins from feeling too dense. The apple cider is just a nice touch.
With just a half cup of pumpkin puree, and cornmeal and molasses to balance the pumpkin flavour, these muffins have just the right amount of pumpkin taste for me. And they’re surprisingly light textured. Even after a few days on the counter they don’t end up dense like many muffins. These muffins are a delicious substitute for cornbread.
