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 !!!
