On Oct. 26th, I posted a recipe of sorts for the best pumpkin muffins ever. Well, since then I’ve been working on the recipe (which was not originally mine) to make it more what I needed. So here’s a revamped version … Yummy Pumpkin Muffins! It started out as a bread. I wanted to use the whole can of pumpkin and also change out some of the ingredients, hence the revamping. Give it a try. You won’t be sorry!
Yummy Pumpkin Muffins
(makes 18 muffins)
2 1/2 C all purpose flour
1 C sugar
3/4 C brown sugar, packed
1 1/4 t pumpkin pie spice
1 1/2 t baking soda
1 1/2 t baking powder
1/4 + 1/8 t salt
1 can pumpkin
1/2 C coconut oil
6 T butter, melted (not margarine)
1/3 C applesauce (or Mott’s snack size cup)
3 extra large eggs
1 1/2 t pure vanilla extract
1 1/4 C all purpose flour
1/2 C brown sugar, packed
1/4 C sugar
1 t pumpkin pie spice
1/2 C butter, melted (not margarine)
1/2 – 1 C hand broken pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix first 7 dry ingredients in large bowl. Mix last 6 ingredients in mixing bowl using medium speed on mixer. Mix well. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients in mixing bowl. Mix well on medium speed.
Topping: Mix all the dry ingredients for the topping in a medium bowl. Add melted butter and mix. Add pecans and mix.
Spray muffin tins with Bakers Joy. Use large scoop to scoop batter into muffin cups. Fill 1/2 to almost full making sure all cups are evenly filled. Sprinkle topping on top of batter using all the topping. Pat down lightly. It’s important that you leave none of that topping in the bowl! This is where the party’s at!!!
Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. Let cool. Eat one to make sure they’re good and then freeze the rest in freezer storage bags. The longer they’re in the freezer the better they seem to get. They freeze very well and are great for gifts such as welcome baskets, etc.
I’ve made these muffins several time and have had rave reviews. As a matter of fact, I’ve made them twice for my dad who doesn’t like pumpkin and the last time he ate two of them before I left his house. 🙂
Update: I just found a site that I can enter my recipes and after a fight, it will calculate the calories per serving. 🙂 Unfortunately, it also tells you how much fat and sugar, too. These muffins are soooo good, but not at all healthy. This is for one good sized muffin.
