Notes

  • Go for pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling. Pumpkin pie filling is often loaded with additives and gives the muffins the wrong flavor.
  • Make sure your ingredients are up to room temp before mixing.
  • You can use coconut sugar or low-calorie sweetener.
  • When combining your wet and dry ingredients don't overmix, otherwise the batter will make tough muffins.
  • You can use a cookie scoop to evenly portion out the batter into the molds.
  • Make sure you line the muffin pan with paper liners or grease the muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Don’t over bake the muffins. Take these Healthy Pumpkin Muffins out when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
