Pumpkin Ginger Muffins or Cupcakes

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by GoldsmithLissa

Use white flour if you prefer, but I think the wheat gives it great texture! Tweak the spices to your liking...I use 1 Tbs each because I like the spicier holiday flavour. Add allspice and/or other holiday spices... I've also used vanilla yogurt and it adds a soft variation more for a dessert type muffin. Also try topping with cream cheese icing (check my recipe I posted!). Sometimes I even add a little cinnamon, ginger, etc or a mix of holiday spices to the icing. Use smaller muffin pans to make a nice snack for your meal or a quick breakfast. You can even freeze them! Try making a loaf cake as well.

What a yummy, hearty, lowfat recipe! I can't say they were bursting with flavor and I can certainly see how a cream cheese frosting would liven them up but I felt great about my kiddos eating as many as they wanted. I only cooked them for 20 min. and they came out a little dry so next time I will shorten the cooking time.
