Healthy Pumpkin Muffin Recipe

It’s fall so it’s time for pumpkin muffins. We created a healthy recipe for you to enjoy all season long. 
 
Pumpkin is full of fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, folate, and potassium. This means it’s good for your digestive system, the health of your eyes, and it helps support your immune system. Plus it tastes delicious as the leaves start to change the season.

Ingredients

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a muffin tray with paper or silicone liners.

In a large bowl, mix the eggs, pumpkin, maple syrup, milk, and melted butter. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, and sea salt. Whisk until combined, then stir into the wet ingredients.

Stir in the chopped walnuts.

Spoon the batter into each muffin liner to about 3/4 full. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
