rock’s post: incredible pumpkin spice muffins

Fall is upon us… So it is time for pumpkin spice stuff!!!  Pumpkin spice latte, pumpkin pie and, of course, pumpkin spice muffins !!

After some very intense researches, I found a healthy recipe who mixes pumpkin and maple sirup…  What about mixing fall and spring?   This is a very easy recipe.  You will need:

2 cups whole wheat flour (so it makes this whole recipe healthy!)   /  1½ cups all purpose flour  /  2 teaspoons baking soda  /  1 teaspoon baking powder  /  3 teaspoon of Pumpkin pie spice (or 1 teaspoon each cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg)  /  ½ teaspoon salt  /  ¾ cup granulated sugar  /  2 cups pumpkin puree  /  ½ cup avocado oil (or olive oil)  /  ¼ cup real maple syrup  /  3 tablespoons milk  /  3 large eggs

Pre heat the oven to 350F.  Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix the wet ingredients in another bowl.  Still very simple…  Add the wet ingredients into the dry one with the help of a mixer until just combined.  Scoop this great orange mix into the muffin pan.  Cook for about 20 minutes.

Now you have 20 minutes to do the glaze.  You will need:

2 tablespoons butter  /  1¼ cups powdered sugar  /  1 teaspoons vanilla  /  1 tablespoon maple syrup  /  1-2 tablespoons water

Melt the butter in a pan, add the sugar, vanilla and the maple sirup.  Add water to the desire thickness.  I honestly add more maple sirup… until a really taste maple sirup; the result was very tasty!

I applied the glaze over the warm muffin and I was ready to eat them all…

I baked 15 muffins and they were all gone in a matter of minutes…  Can’t argue with success !!!
