This is a recipe I adapted from an old favorite, applesauce muffins. They are high in fibre and low in fat.
- 1 1⁄4 cups flour
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 cup oats
- 1 1⁄4 cups pumpkin puree
- 1⁄4 cup oil
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Oil or spray muffin tins with cooking spray.
- Sift together the dry ingredients.
- Add the rest of the ingredients and stir until just moistened.
- Divide into 12 muffins and bake for 15-20 minutes until cooked in centre.
- Remove from pan after 5-10 minutes and let cool.
- place in a airtight container and try not to eat for 24 hours as they will become more moist.
It always seems that the lo fat recipes just never taste like a treat. These muffins are absolutely delicious! I used oat flour just to add a little more nutrition, but I was really pleased with the results. Will definitely make these again!
I wasn't a big fan of these muffins. They turned out extremely dense and didn't have enough pumpkin flavor in my opinion. The muffins were dry and had a rough texture. Wouldn't make them again and don't recommend this recipe to anyone trying to make healthier muffins.
These muffins are delicious, I made them last week with roasted puréed Pumpkin and this week I substituted the Pumpkin for mashed Banana and they were awesome. Thanks for sharing and I will be cooking up another batch next week. :)
