Healthy Pumpkin Muffins

READY IN: 28mins
Recipe by Melissa

Adapted from a recipe on a can of pumpkin. They are low in fat, so don't use paper liners--they stick!

Top Review by Whole Grains FTW

These turned out pretty good, but a little bland. The texture was great, though--however, I did make a couple modifications: 4T sugar became 2T sugar and 1T molasses 1 tsp cinnamon, etc. became 1T pumpkin pie spice + 1T cinnamon + 1 tsp nutmeg I used 2c whole-wheat pastry flour I added 2T nonfat plain yogurt (I think this really helped the texture). However, I think it was missing some salt. It also could have done with some more sugar/spices. But overall, not a bad recipe. I plan to experiment more in the future.
