Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Prep time: 10 mins     Cook time: 10 mins     Total time: 20 mins
Serves: 40 mini muffins <– They disappear fast!

Ingredients

  • 1 & 3/4 cups all purpose flour (I used whole wheat all purpose flour)
  • 1/2 cup stevia (I used Truvia)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/8 teaspoon cloves
  • 1 cup pumpkin (I used canned pumpkin)
  • 1/2 cup unsweeteneed almond milk
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce

Instructions

  1. Preheat over to 375 degrees and lightly grease mini muffin baking tins.
  2. Sift together flour, stevia, baking powder, salt and spices.  In a separate bowl, whisk together pumpkin, almond milk and apple sauce.  Pour wet ingredients into dry and mix.
  3. Fill the muffin tins half-way to two-thirds full.  Bake for 8-10 minutes or until a toothpick is inserted and comes out clean.

Notes

  • This recipe works best with mini muffins.  I have tried with larger muffins and the consistency is a little off.  If you try the larger muffins and have success, please comment below!
  • Depending on how many muffins you stretch the batter to make, it will impact the nutritional information.  My muffins are usually between 20-30 calories each.
  • The muffins will rise A LOT while cooking so be certain not to overfill the tray.  These probably would make great cake pops too!
  • I am still perfecting the recipe for the icing.  The icing in the picture is a combination of coconut oil, powdered sugar (stevia), and vanilla extract.  One of my favorite (non-vegan) icing recipes is the traditional cream cheese and powdered sugar icing <3
