Pumpkin-Pecan Muffins

Total Time

This is a tasty, healthy muffin that both kids and adults will love. I got the recipe from a whole foods cookbook published by La Leche League. The ingredients list looks lengthy because many things are included in both the muffin and the topping so I just have two bowls ready and measure for both at the same time. To give an extra nutritional boost, I cut the oil to 1/4 C and add an extra 1/4 C of pumpkin. They come out very moist.

Just finished baking these, and they turned out very yummy. I followed the recipe exactly but also added some mini chocolate chips. The muffin was perfect on the sweetness level. Will be making these again! Thanks!
