I’m back with another muffin recipe! (Here’s the whole wheat banana nut one if ya missed it)

If you’re like me and lusting after all things pumpkin-packed right now in the spirit of fall (but still want to eat healthy), then be sure to bookmark (or pin) this recipe because it’s definitely a keeper!

Recipe adapted from Carrots ‘n Cake

Makes approx. 9 regular-sized muffins

Ingredients: — always buy organic when possible!

  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 2 eggs (flax eggs, if vegan)
  • 1/8 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well.

Pour mixture into prepared muffin pan lined with cupcake liners. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown. (Insert a toothpick into the center of the muffin to make sure it comes out clean). Serve with pumpkin butter for a real treat. Enjoy!
