An Easy, Healthy, Whole Wheat Pumpkin Muffin Recipe

Lately, I’ve been trying to make a batch of a healthy morning treat at the start of the week so Baby and I can have an easy but healthy breakfast each morning. So far, this has mostly been a variation of breads, muffins, and pancakes. This week’s treat is a very easy and very healthy, whole wheat pumpkin muffin.

Easy, Healthy, Whole Wheat Pumpkin Muffin Recipe

1 cup of pureed pumpkin
1 2/3 cup of whole wheat flour
1/2 cup of coconut oil
3/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon of molasses
1/4 cup of water
1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of baking soda

Mix all of the ingredients together, and add the mixture to a 12 cup muffin tray.
Bake on 325 for 40 minutes.

This is why I use all organic ingredients.

    Thanks for sharing the recipe. Pumpkin is one of those super foods that is full of antioxidants and is very healthy. However, it isn’t always easy to find ways to work it into your diet. So every recipe helps me in building new ways for my family to eat healthy.

    Your little one is such a cutie :)

    Okay, did this with a couple of subs:
    – Coconut milk instead of water
    -Grapeseed oil instead of coconut oil
    -2 big tsp’s of cinnamon (couldn’t find the nutmeg??)

    Filled my 12 muffin tin spots to the top and still have enough batter left over for 4 more muffins. Oh, and I added 1 cup of dark chocolate chips as these will be a snack, not breakfast for us…and I can’t say no to chocolate!! :)
    40 mins does seem like a long time to bake muffins, but I trust you!
    They smell so good baking…
    And they are DELICIOUS!!! And not too sweet, even with the chocolate chips. Moist and yummy! Thank you for an awesome recipe – I’ll be making them again soon!!

    I like pumpkin myself. I have made pumpkin bread and pumpkin muffins from scratch. I made the muffins for a group and they really raved about it.

    I love to make muffins for others. Always they seem to turn out. I also like coming up with different recipes, from time to time. Creating new things.

    Sometimes I like to add flavorful paste, such as almond paste too
