Absolutely delicious! Soft and moist. Added some chopped dried figs and raisins, and used walnuts instead of pecans. Will definitely make again.
I just made these, adding a small amount of chocolate chips and incorporating the chopped pecans into the batter. These are very good and satisfy both the sweet tooth and the desire for a healthy snack. They are filling, too!
I have been using this app for 3 years. Some items become my “go to” favorites. I like this one very much. Finding unadulterated canned pumpkin in my area is difficult so I will substitute sweet potatoes or butternut squash. It works too!! I found a can of the perfect pumpkin and made it strictly as instructed. It is not a sweet muffin. That could be adjusted to your preference but “as is” puts it into my favs list.
These were good. The cooking time is a little too long, maybe 20-25 would be better. I did change it up a little, used Fairlife instead of almond milk, added cranberries, increased the pumpkin pie spice to 3 teaspoons, added 1/4 cup of molasses as it needed a little more sweetener and added 1/2 cup of pecans into the batter, and omitted the pecan topping. They were good but needed something. Fortunately, I had just made apple butter so problem solved. They also go well with almond butter.
I was hoping to make this gluten-free…suggestions? Thank you.
My favorite glutin free combo for muffins is 1/2 almond flour and 1/2 glutin free flour mix
I was thinking I’d just use all oat flour instead. Maybe you could sub one of those GF all purpose mixes?
I only give 3 stars, because this recipe definitely lacks punch. Remember to double or even triple the spices (I bought my spices the same day that I made the recipe at Bulk Barn). Even with doubling the spices you could barely detect them. I would also add raisins to make the muffin less boring and also, reduce the baking time to 20 minutes.
These were delicious! They came out of a non-stick pan easily. I used coconut milk & water for the almond milk and half whole wheat/half bread for the pastry flour.
These are delicious! I used butternut squash instead of pumpkin. And walnuts instead of pecans. I didn’t have enough pumpkin pie spice so I subbed allspice. Turned out satisfying and moist. Perfect for breakfast with a fruit salad. Yum!
